Approximately 121,000 pairs of plastic trapeze rings found on Rainbow playsets are subject to recall, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

This recall involves only the yellow plastic trapeze rings. They are triangular in shape with rounded sides and have a loop at the top. They measure about 8-1/2 inches high by 6-1/2 inches wide. The rings come as a pair and connect to a trapeze bar. They were sold either as a separate component or as an attachment on the following Rainbow-branded residential wooden playsets: All-American, Backyard Circus, Carnival, Fiesta, King Kong, Monster, Sunray, Sunshine, and Rainbow.

All these playsets have an aluminum plate on the front of the wooden swing beam with one of the following stamped on it, “Playgrounds America,” “Rainbow Play Systems Inc.,” or “Sunray Premium Playgrounds.”

The rings can unexpectedly crack or break during use, posing a fall hazard to children. Rainbow has received more than 100 reports of the rings cracking or breaking, including 15 with reports of injuries, consisting of bumps, bruises, lacerations, concussion, and one broken finger.

The playsets were sold by Rainbow dealers nationwide from January 2007 through December 2011 and at several mass merchandisers, including Sam’s Club, Toys R Us, and Walmart, from January-December 2009. The playsets retailed for between $900 and $10,000.

Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled rings, contact Rainbow for ring removal instructions, then remove the rings from the playset and receive a $10 gift card.

For more information, call Rainbow Play Systems at 888-201-1570 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit www.rainbowplay.com and click on Recall.
