Thousands of swing sets are under recall

HOUSTON – Thousands of swing sets are under recall because they could hurt your little ones.

Backyard Discovery says the Big Brutus, Little Brutus and Mini Brutus A-frame sets pose an injury risk because the attachment that connects the swing hanger to the top tube can fail.

The company sold about 9,000 of the swing sets at,,,, and other online retailers from May 2019 through January 2021 for between $400 to $570, depending on the model.

If you have one, you can call backyard discovery for a free repair kit.
