About 40,000 trampolines that sold exclusively at Toys R US have been recalled due to fall hazards.
What's the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation Aqua-Leisure Industries Inc., of Avon, Massachusetts, has recalled about 40,000 First Fitness® trampolines with handlebars. Metal fatigue can cause the handlebar to break away during use, posing a risk of laceration from exposed metal surfaces or other injury from a fall. Aqua-Leisure has received four reports of handlebars breaking from the metal connection joint during use. No injuries have been reported.
Do You Own It?
This recall involves First Fitness Kid's First trampolines with handlebars. The child-size toy trampolines have a red and blue metal handlebar, a blue nylon deck guard, and a black jumping deck. "First Fitness" is embossed on the jumping deck in white letters. The trampolines can be identified by model number FF-6902TR and Toys R Us SKN 491463. The model and store numbers can be found on the lower right corner of the back of the packaging. A sewn-in tag on the bottom of the deck lists the factory date code of five numbers followed by "GLTX."
The trampolines sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide from September 2010 through April 2012 for between $45 and $70.
