Recall of Garden Swings from Big Lots

If you purchased a Big Lots garden swing between March 2012 through June 2012 that cost around $130, you might want to do a double take.

The Big Lots Garden Swings (Wilson & Fisher Garden Swings) are associated with a concerned Fall Hazard because it's been noted that the wooden seat can possibly break while "in use."  Meaning while you're in swing mode/motion!

There have been a few reports of breaks and some with scrapes and scratches.
