About 900 Slalom Gliders have been recalled by Landscape Structures Inc., of Delano, Minn. The Slalom Glider is a playground slide that lacks a transition platform on the top and sides of the chute. Children can fall when moving from the ladder to the slide and when descending the chute. CPSC and the firm have received 16 reports of injuries to children under eight years old, including one bruised arm, 14 fractures to arms and legs, one fractured collar bone and one bruised spleen. The Slalom Glider is a distinctive six-foot high playground slide that is curved in shape and made from molded plastic. It includes an arched, tubular steel access ladder. The recalled product comes as a stand-alone slide or as an attachment to other playground equipment. The recalled products have model numbers 156456 and 172627 and were sold in combinations of colors, including red, blue, tan, green, granite and white.
The gliders were sold to schools and other facilities with playground equipment nationwide between January 2006 and December 2011 for about $2300. Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled gliders. Owners will be contacted by Landscape Structures regarding removal instructions. Customers will be given the option of replacing the Slalom Glider with another piece of playground equipment, receiving a refund, or receiving credit towards a future purchase.
