US – About 5,100 Playsets that were sold in Costco and Lowes are being recalled due to an entrapment hazard.
According to the recall, the wooden parts used to reinforce and create a decorative gable design on the wooden roof pose an entrapment hazard to children. Children can become trapped in the gap between the lower part of the roof structure and the bottom of the gable decoration.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled playsets and contact Backyard Play Systems for a free repair kit that includes replacement wood parts, hardware, and instructions. If a consumer is unable or does not want to do the repair themselves, Backyard will send a representative to perform the repair for them at no charge. The firm is contacting all known purchasers directly.
No injuries have been reported
The playsets were sold Online at Costco.com from March 2019 through May 2021 (Turbo Racer, Cloud Racer) and online at Lowes.com from December 2020 through May 2021 (Captain’s Fort, Fort Highlander) for about $1,000.
