What’s the Problem?

The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1] 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.

What is the Most Dangerous Playground Equipment?

When considering the safety of children on playgrounds, it’s essential to be aware of dangerous playground equipment and the potential hazards associated with them. According to the CPSC, over 206,700 children under the age of 16 visit the emergency room each year due to playground-related injuries.

Statistics from the National Safety Council (NSC) have found that nearly 80% of playground injuries are caused by falls. Falls can happen while climbing, swinging, and sliding. While all playground equipment requires appropriate supervision and safety measures, the following equipment has been linked to an increased risk of injuries:

  • Swings
  • Climbing Equipment
  • Trapeze Bars & Exercise Rings
  • Trampolines
  • Slides
  • Merry-Go-Rounds
  • Seesaws & Teeter-Totter
