A series of slides sold only at Toys R us have been recalled by the Hamburg, New York-based Solowave Design Corporation because of a possible laceration hazard posed. The recall pertains to 10,800 tube slides under the Solowave Tornado brand sold in the United States and 9,900 of the same sold in Canada. These slides have portholes that are in danger of breaking, and when that happens, kids in and around the slides could be exposed to an increased laceration threat. 23 injury reports have already been filed, and in a bid to minimize further damage, owners are being asked to keep kids away from the slide and to get in touch with the company to obtain new porthole windows. The products were sold between February 2008 and this past August.
