Little Tikes swings recalled because of defective buckles and straps

Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) _ An Ohio company is recalling about 250,000 swings because buckles can break and the shoulder straps can come loose, causing young children to fall.

Little Tikes Company, of Hudson, Ohio, and the government have received 14 reports of problems with the swings, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday. Five injuries to children included scrapes, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head.

The ''2-in-1 Snug 'n Secure'' swings are plastic and have a blue seat with a red T-shaped restraint bar on the front. The swing hangs from four yellow ropes. Only swings with blue or white buckles are included in this recall.

The model number 4117-00 is molded under the seat. The ``little tikes'' logo is written on the restraint bar.

Stores nationwide sold the swings from December 2000 through September 2001 for about $20 for children ages 9-months through 4-years old.

The safety agency said consumers should stop using the swings and contact Little Tikes at toll-free at 1-800-815-4820 to receive a repair kit.
