According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Adventure Playsets has recalled about 240,000 swing sets due to a fall hazard. The wood in the posts of the fort section on the swing sets can rot, causing weakening and leading to a fall hazard. There have been over 500 complaints relating to the Adventure Playsets playground equipment, with concerns expressed about the weakened wood in the 2×4 plastic-coated uprights. The recalled swing sets were distributed under the names: Bellevue, Bellevue II, Belmont, Durango, Durango II, Sedona, Tacoma, Tacoma II, Ventura, Ventura II, and Yukon. They were sold under the various names at Academy Sports, Mills and Menards, Mills, Toys-R-Us, and Walmart for $300-$600.
