Children's slide recalled after many injuries

WASHINGTON, D.C (WFLX)-  Children's playground slides that have contributed to more than a dozen fractured bones of small children are being recalled and consumers are urged to remove the slides.

About 900 of these "Slalom Glider" children's slides are being recalled.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the slide lacks a transition platform on the top and sides of the chute, causing some children to fall when moving from the ladder to the slide.

The agency reports 16 injuries to children younger than 8, including 14 fractures to arms and legs, a fractured collar bone and bruises.

The slides were sold nationwide to schools and other facilities between January 2006 and December 2011.

Consumers should contact 'Landscape Structures' to replace the equipment, receive a refund, or receive credit for a future purchase at 888-438-6574.
