Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some IKEA Gunggung Child Swing Sets.

The Gunggung Child Swing Sets are intended for indoor and outdoor use by children ages 3 to 7. They are made of green polyester fabric and hangs from a plastic suspension fitting attached to steel hooks. The full length of the suspension strap, including the sling seat, is 17 feet and the width of the seat is 0.8 feet.

A permanent label is attached to one of the suspension straps, showing age recommendation (3 to 7), IKEA logo, Design and Quality IKEA of Sweden, the Gunggung article number of “302.439.74”, the supplier number of “17915” and the phrase, “Made in Vietnam”.

Please consult the photograph above for further details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, the suspension fittings can break causing a child to fall from the Swing, posing a risk of serious injury. There have been four (4) reports worldwide including one in Germany, two in Austria and one in Canada of the suspension fittings breaking in use. In one incident, a child fell and sustained a fractured leg. No incidents have been reported in the US.

Parents and/or other caregivers should immediately remove the child from Gunggung Child Swing Sets to eliminate the hazard, take down the Swing to prevent use by children and return it to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase is not required to receive a full refund for the return.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
