Sportspower Limited Recalls Trampolines Sold at Walmart
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Sportspower Limited announced a voluntary recall of Sportspower BouncePro 14′ Trampolines, sold exclusively at Walmart. People should immediately stop using the recalled trampolines.
The trampolines were recalled because 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.
The recall involves Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampolines with brown mesh netting. UPC codes 68706404210 and 68706404244 are printed on the trampoline box, and “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 recalled trampolines were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide from February 2009 through February 2012 for about $275. People should stop using the trampolines immediately and contact Sportspower to receive replacement black netting for the trampoline. For more information, contact Sportspower’s customer service hotline toll-free at (888) 965-0565 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday – Friday, or visit http://www.sportspowerltd.net/recall-bouncepro-14ft.html, or e-mail Sportspower at email@example.com.
