The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 1,950 children's swing sets because the products did not come with assembly directions for the seat harness.Littletikes

The Little Tikes Clubhouse Swing Set is a plastic molded product that features a climbing wall, rope ladder, slide and two swings with blue and yellow seats. They were sold at retailers including Toys R Us and Wal-Mart from October 2008 through March 2009 for about $450.

No injuries have been reported. Consumers should stop using the recalled swing sets immediately until they have obtained and read the assembly instructions for the swing seat harness. Instructions can be obtained by accessing the Little Tikes website or by calling the company's hotline at (800) 321-0183.
