WASHINGTON, D.C. - Spring has sprung. Warm weather means kids are playing outside and families are firing up their grills and working on the lawn. Before you use spring-related products this season, check to see if they have been recalled. It could save your family's lives. You can find out more about these recalls at www.cpsc.gov.

Adventure Playsets (240,000 units) | 11-262 |The wood in the posts of the fort sections on the swing sets can weaken due to rotting, posing a fall hazard.

Pacific Cycle Dartmouth Swing Sets (5,500 units) | 11-313 | The sling-style swing seats can crack or split prematurely, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

Slalom Glider (900 units) | 12-109 | The Slalom Glider is a playground slide that lacks a transition platform on the top and sides on the chute. Children can fall when moving from the ladder to the slide and when descending the chute.

Uni-O Portable LP Gas Grills (4,530 units) | 12-077 | The regulator on the grill can leak gas, which can ignite, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

Westinghouse Ceiling Fans (7,000 units) | 12-135 | The two 60-watt light bulbs included with the ceiling fans exceed the fan's maximum wattage, which can cause the ceiling fans to overheat or fail. This poses fire and shock hazards to consumers.

This hazard can occur if the consumer does not see the flame or is not aware that the firepot is still ignited. Gel fuel that splatters and ignites can pose fire and burn risks to consumers that can be fatal.
