Sportspower trampolines recalled due to safety hazard

Posted on

Sportspower Limited, a sporting goods manufacturer located in Hong Kong China, has issued a voluntary recall at the urging of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission for approximately 92,000 of its Sportspower BouncePro 14 foot Trampolines due to a defect that might cause a fall hazard. The netting material surrounding the edges of these trampolines may break, a potential safety issue that might permit children to fall through the netting posing an injury risk. To date, the manufacturer has received consumer complaints of 17 incidents related to broken netting , including 11 reports involving back and neck injuries, contusions or fractured bones from falls. Trampolines affected by this recall are Sportspower BouncePro 14 foot models packaged in boxes imprinted with universal product codes 68706404244 and 68706404210. The legs of these trampolines bare the branding information Sportspower BouncePro 14 and code TR-14-63-A on the leg of the trampoline’s frame. These trampolines were sold exclusively at Walmart retail stores across the United States for an estimated retail price of $275. Consumers of the affected trampolines should discontinue their use and contact the manufacturer for free replacement netting.
