(WBNG Binghamton) Escalade Sports has recalled some of its Outdoor Playsets.

About 4,600 of the units were sold

The swing seats on the playsets can crack and break in half, causing the user to fall to the ground.

Escalade Sports has received 24 reports of the seats breaking, although no injuries have been reported.

The belt-style swing seats are recalled for four models of Oasis Playsets: PG01W, PG02W, PG03W and PG04W.

Model numbers are located on a plate on the swing's horizontal beam.

The green plastic seats are about 26 inches long and are hung from green, plastic-coated chains.
