Fisher-Price Recalls Lift 'n Lock Swings

Little Lock Swing RecallEast Aurora, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Fisher-Price said today it is voluntarily recalling about 2.5 million Lift 'n Lock Swings because children can maneuver out of the restraints and fall out of the swings, resulting in serious injuries.

Fisher-Price has received 110 reports of children falling out of the swings, and 38 children suffered injuries. Eight children suffered serious injuries, including a fractured skull, leg, arm and two collarbones; two concussions; and stitches to the forehead. Thirty children received minor injuries including bumps, bruises and scrapes.

The Lift & Lock Swings have red or purple plastic seats, yellow "T"- shaped restraint shields that hold children in the swing, and blue ropes. "Fisher-Price(r)" is written on the front of the restraint shield. The swings have model numbers 2092, 75960, 75970, 75973 or 75980 molded into the back part of the seat. Mass merchandise, juvenile products and discount department stores sold these swings from January 1991 through August 2000 for about $19.

Consumers should stop using the swings immediately. Fisher-Price will provide a free repair kit with a supplemental waist and crotch restraint belt.

For more information consumers should call Fisher-Price toll-free at (800) 343-1502 anytime. The product remedy is available only through Fisher-Price. Consumers also can visit the Fisher-Price website here for more information.
