May 9, 2012: Trampolines Recalled by Sportspower Limited
About 92,000 trampolines that sold exclusively at Wal-Mart have been recalled due to fall hazards.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Sportspower Limited, of Hong Kong, China, has recalled about 92,000 Sportspower BouncePro 14′ Trampolines. The netting surrounding these trampolines can break, allowing children to fall through the netting and be injured. Sportspower has received 17 reports of the net breaking, resulting in 11 injuries including broken bones, back and neck injuries, and contusions.
Do You Own It?
The recall involves the Sportspower BouncePro 14′ Trampolines with brown mesh netting. UPC codes 68706404210 and 68706404244 are printed on the trampoline box. “Sportspower BouncePro 14″ and “TR-14-63-A” are printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame. The trampolines are surrounded by brown netting measuring about 6 feet high on the perimeter of the trampoline. The netting is designed to contain individuals bouncing on the trampoline. The trampolines sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from February 2009 through February 2012 for about $275.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should stop using the trampolines immediately and contact Sportspower to receive replacement black netting for the trampoline.
