540,000 baby swings made by the Little Tikes Company in Hudson Ohio are being recalled because of a problem with the swings seats.

The 2 in 1 Snug n' Secure Pink Swings have plastic seats that the company says could crack and break, leading to a falling hazard.  So far there have been 140 reported problems resulting in 39 injuries including bumps, cuts, bruises and broken arms.

The recall is being done in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.  The toddler swings were sold at Walmart, Toys R Us and other stores between 2009 and 2014.

Owners are being advised to stop using the swings immediately and contact "www.littletikes.com" for a full credit.
