Fall Risk Prompts Expanded Recall of Sportspower BouncePro Trampolines
In May of last year, around 92,000 Sportspower BouncePro trampolines that contained brown tetlon netting were recalled because of the fall hazard posed to children. Now, that recall has been expanded to include an additional 28,000 units with black netting. As before, the netting around these 14-foot wide units is in danger of breaking, which could lead a child to fall and sustain an injury. Since the first recall, nine further incident reports have come to Sportspower’s attention, and five of those led to broken bones and other injuries. Sold only at Walmart between February 2009 and March 2011, the trampolines should not be used until a replacement net can be obtained from the company.
