Almost 7,000 Wilson & Fisher Garden Swings are being recalled because their wood seats can break and consumers can fall.

Big Lots, the swings’ importer, has received 14 reports of broken seats and 9 reports of injuries including back pain, scratches, and scrapes.

The garden swings, $130, were sold exclusively at Big Lots stores nationwide from March 2012 through June 2012. If you own one, stop using it, detach the bench seat, and return it to any Big Lots store for a full refund. Then destroy the remaining components.
