Recalled Playground Slides Injuring Children


A product recall has been issued by Playworld on their Lightning Slides because these stainless steel slides have posed a threat to the safety of the children that use them. These slides have been sold to a variety of buyers for about sixteen years. However, the recent recall of these products has been initiated because the slide has caused physical harm to two children, each of whom has experienced finger amputations because of the faulty welding on the slide. About thirteen of these slides have had welds that have broken. Therefore, around 1,300 of these products have been recalled in order to avoid further issues.

Many children suffer injuries every year due to faulty toys. In fact, it has been reported that from the years 2006 to 2011, about 42% of the products that were recalled were products made for children.
