November 12, 1998Menard Inc. Recall
"Henry" Gym Sets
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - Menard Inc. is
recalling about 8,000 "Henry" Gym Sets, model #68. If assembled incorrectly, the
glider support tube on these gym sets could bend or break, causing the riders to fall or
be thrown from the glider.
A three-year-old boy was thrown to the ground when
the support tube on the gym set broke. He did not suffer any injuries.
The set includes two swings and a glider. The gym
set is chrome colored with a blue top horizontal bar. The 18 Menard retail stores in the
North Central region of the U.S. sold these gym sets from July 1991 through August 1998
for about $50.
Consumers should not allow children to ride on the gym set glider until they check if
their gym set is assembled correctly. To determine this and to receive revised assembly
instructions, consumers should call Menard Inc. toll-free at (888) 215-3349 anytime.
