SALT LAKE CITY -- Makers of popular backyard play sets are telling families to stop using them.
Several children have fallen from these Adventure Playsets; some broke their arms. Executives say the plastic-coated lumber on the monkey bars can weaken from the rotting wood.
Walmart, Toys-R-Us and other national retails sold the play sets. Owners can call the company for a replacement kit.
