The last week in June, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Adventure Playsets, of Pittsburg, KS. recalled 240,000 Adventure Playsets Wooden Swing Sets. The wood in the posts of the fort sections on the swing sets can weaken due to rotting, posing a fall hazard.

The swing sets come with swings, slides and ladders. Each set has a fort structure that uses green or cranberry colored plastic coated 2”x 4” wood upright posts and a green nylon fabric covered shade. The sets were sold under the following names: Bellevue, Bellevue II, Belmont, Durango, Durango II, Sedona, Tacoma, Tacoma II, Ventura, Venture II and Yukon,. The name is printed on the manufacturer’s instructions that came with the play set. The recalled swing set name, model number, name of the retailer and year sold follow:
