Tornado brand home playground tube slides with portholes have been recalled by their manufacturer Solowave Design Corp., of Hamburg, N.Y. The plastic porthole-type windows in the tube slide can break, posing a laceration hazard to children. This includes about 10,800 in the U.S. and 9,900 in Canada. This recall involves Solowave Tornado brand home playground tube slides with portholes. The slides are green, six or seven feet long and have three or five porthole-style plastic windows in the sides. The slides were sold with Solowave’s Centennial, Centennial II, Lexington, Rocky Mountain Deluxe and Sheridan play systems and were also sold separately. Solowave Design is stamped on the outside of the slides near the middle of each tube slide section. Solowave has received 23 reports of minor injuries to children, including cuts and scrapes, from contact with broken portholes.
The slides were sold at Toys R Us and other stores nationwide, and online at toysrus.com from February 2008 through August 2013 for between $1,300 and $1,800 as part of a play system, or between $275 and $370 for the slide only. Consumers should stop using the recalled slide immediately and contact Solowave to receive a free repair kit for the port hole windows.
