What’s the Problem?
The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) on Dec. 19, 2019, announced a nationwide recall for about 440 BCI Burke Merge Playground Climbers over concerns that a welded rung opening on the sides of the climber could pose an entrapment hazard to children.
The recall affects Burke Merge Metal Climbers used on playground equipment for children to climb up to access the play structure, CPSC said. The word “Burke” is printed on a label on the exterior of the play structure. The climbers were sold through Burke sales representatives or Burke direct from November 2015 through August 2019 for about $1,460.
If you purchased a Burke Merge Playground Climber that is affected by this recall, you should take it out of use by children immediately. BCI Burke is contacting owners by certified mail, CPSC said. Burke representatives will inspect and replace climbers that are not compliant with the current standard for the climber.
