The CPSC recently announced a recall for Playland International swing sets.  The recalled swing sets were sold by Playland through dealers nationwide, betweem September 2001 and May 2006 for betweem $800 and $2300.  Around 700 of these units were sold.  The effected units have a 3.5 inch arch swing frame, a 3.5 inch top metal bar, and come in many colors.

The problem with  the swing sets is that the metal around the weld at the top of the swing frame can fail, which results in the top bar falling on anyone underneat the swing set.  One child suffered a head injury after the bar fell on their head.
