BCI Burke recalls Merge Playground Climbers

BCI Burke recalls Merge Playground Climbers due to a welded rung opening on the sides of the climber poses an entrapment hazard to children.

This recall involves the Burke Merge metal climbers used on playground equipment for children to climb up to access the play structure. “Burke” is printed on identification labels that are placed on the exterior of the play structure.

Consumers should immediately stop using the Merge Climbers and block them off from children’s use. BCI Burke is contacting all known owners directly by certified mail, and Burke representatives will inspect and replace climbers that are not compliant with the current voluntary standard for this product. 

Consumers contact BCI Burke at 800-356-2070 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at and click on the Recall Information tab for more information. 

The playground equipment was sold through Burke sales representatives or Burke direct from November 2015 through August 2019 for about $1,460.
