Affected products

This recall involves Backyard Play Systems outdoor playsets with a wooden roof.

Issue

The wooden parts used to reinforce and create a decorative gable design on the wooden roof pose an entrapment hazard to children. Children can become trapped in the gap between the lower part of the roof structure and the bottom of the gable decoration.

As of November 1, 2021 the company has received no reports incident or injury in Canada or the United States.
