As a consumer, you have a
reasonable expectation that the products you buy will be safe to use. Most
consumers put great care into the things that they buy, especially when those
products are for children. Read more for a recall alert on a children’s product

This recall comes after two reports
of the seat peg coming out from under the seat, causing the seat to fall unexpectedly.
There have been no injuries reported, but the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission recommends that consumers stop using the swing immediately to avoid
any potential harm. About 34,000 units have been recalled. The swings were sold
at stores such as buybuyBaby and Target, as well as websites like Amazon, from
November 2015 to March 2016. To determine if your swing has been recalled,
check the product number, which can be found on the seat underneath the pad. If
your swing is part of the recall, the USCPSC recommends that you stop using it
immediately and contact Fisher-Price for new assembly instructions. Click the
