Ikea is recalling about 2,000 children’s swings because the suspension fittings can break, causing a child to fall from the swing and posing a risk of serious injury. The recall involves the GungGung swing, made of green polyester fabric and hanging from a plastic suspension fitting attached to steel hooks. Affected units were sold at Ikea stores nationwide from June 2014 through August 2014 for $20. Consumers should immediately take down the swing to prevent use by children and return it to any Ikea store for a full refund.
Toys R Us is recalling about 19,000 Koala Baby children’s sandals because the butterfly wings on the sandals can rip and detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Affected units were sold at Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores nationwide and online at toysrus.com and babiesrus.com from February 2014 through September 2014 for about $13.
