The swing shown in the photos to the left is called the “GUNGGUNG” child swing, sold at IKEA.
Last month, IKEA recalled the swing because of a fall hazard. The suspension fittings in the recalled swing can break, causing a child to fall out and posing risk of serious injury.
Four incidents worldwide have been reported, one in which a child sustained a fractured leg.
Approximately 2,000 swings were sold in the United States online and at IKEA stores from June 2014 through August 2014 at a price of $20.
If you have the pictured swing, take it down immediately and return it to IKEA for a full refund. IKEA is not requiring proof of purchase to obtain the refund.
