Massive recall as common children's product causes injuries

Little Tikes announced Thursday that the company is voluntarily recalling about 540,00 toddler swings after multiple injury reports.

A popular children's brand issues a voluntary recall of swings.

Little Tikes has recalled its 2-in-1 Snug'n Secure pink toddler swings, which have gotten 140 reports of breaking resulting in dozens of injuries.

The U.S. -manufactured swings, which come with a T-shaped restrainer with the Little Tikes Logo across the front, are attached to four yellow ropes.

Slavery plagues 167 countries and about 45.8 million people, according to The Global Slavery Index . Conservative estimates by the ILO say the number is as low as 20 million.

"The molded INNER arrow of the date code stamp points to "10", "11", "12" or "13". Of the 39 injuries reported, two children suffered from broken arms as a result of falling through the broken seat, Little Tikes said. Parents are instructed to stop using the swing immediately and to contact the company to receive credit toward another product.

The product was sold at Walmart, Toys "R" Us, and other stores nationwide. It retailed for about $25 between November 2009 through May 2014. Online, the swing was also sold at the Little Tikes website.
