About 540,000 swings are subject to recall because the plastic seat can crack or break, posing a fall hazard.

Little Tikes says it received 140 reports of the swing breaking, with 39 injuries to children including abrasions, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head. Two of the reported injuries involved children with a broken arm.

The swings have a pink T-shaped restraint in front with a Little Tikes logo, and each swing is suspended by four yellow ropes.

The model number 615573 is molded on the back of the swing seat, and there is a manufacturing date code stamp on the back of the seat. If the molded INNER arrow of the date code stamp points to "10," "11," "12" or "13," it is included in the recall. In addition, swings with a date code stamp of "9" on the INNER arrow combined with "43" or higher number stamped on the OUTER are included in this recall. 

No other date codes or other colored swings are affected.

Made in the United States, the swings were sold for about $25 at Wal-Mart, Toys "R" Us and other stores nationwide and online at littletikes.com and other websites from November 2009 through May 2014.

Little Tikes, based in Hudson, Ohio, says consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swings and contact Little Tikes for a refund in the form of a credit towards the purchase of another Little Tikes product.
