Delano-based company's playground Slalom Glider slides recalledby Brandt Williams, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — A Delano-based playground equipment maker is involved in a voluntary product recall after more than a dozen children were injured using its slide called the Slalom Glider.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the problem with the slide made by Landscape Structures Inc. is that it lacks a platform between the ladder and slide. It also doesn't have sides to prevent children from falling off the 6-feet tall structure.
Children under 8-years-old have suffered fractures and bruises after falling from the slide.
About 900 slides, sold mostly to schools and other organizations between 2006 and 2011, are being recalled.
A company spokesperson says customers can get the slides replaced with other equipment, they can get a refund or get credit towards a future purchase.
