Wooden playsets pose a fall hazard

November 08, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

About 275,000 wooden Adventure Playsets, distributed by Adventure Playsets of Amarillo, Texas, are being recalled because the materials in the horizontal ladder that forms the monkey bars and swing beam can weaken over time. This poses a fall hazard. The company has received more than 1,400 reports of rotting ladders and 16 reports of injuries, including nine emergency room visits.

The sets were sold at Wal-Mart, Toys "R" Us, Academy Sports, Menards and Mill stores nationwide, and online at Walmart.com, ToyRUs.com, Willygoat.com and through the DMSI catalog from January 2004 to December 2007. Information: (877) 840-9068, www.adventureplaysets.com or www.cpsc.gov

* Jelly Belly Candy Co. is recalling about 6,000 "49 Flavors" jelly bean containers that contain peanut-butter-flavored jelly beans but don't list peanut butter or peanut flower as ingredients on the label. The mislabeled candy was shipped Sept. 29 to independent candy stores across the country, said Tomi Holt, a spokeswoman for the Fairfield, Calif., company. The candy was sold in 7.5-ounce cylinder-style packages branded with the Jelly Belly logo and "49 Flavors," Holt said. Information: (800) 522-3267.
