Solowave Design Corp. has issued a recall of their Tornado brand home playground tube slides with port holes because the slides pose of a laceration hazard for children, reports the PRNewswire.com.
The slides, manufactured in Canada by Solowave Design Corp., of Hamburg, N.Y. and sold at Toy R Us and other stores across the United States from 2008-2013 for a price between $1,300 and $1,800 as part of the playground or between $275 and $370 when sold separately, have been recalled due to a potential for the port-hole type windows to break, causing a laceration hazard to children.
So far, there have been 23 reports of minor injuries to children because the defective slide windows have broken, including reports of cuts and scrapes to children.
The slides, either six feet or seven feet long, are green and have 3 or 5 port-style plastic windows in them. The name Solowave Design is stamped on the outside of the slides. For a complete description of the recalled model, click here.
