Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) - Trampolines sold exclusively at Walmart are being recalled because the safety net surrounding it could fail causing serious injuries. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with Sportspower Limited of Hong Kong, China, announced the voluntary recall.

The manufacturer, Sportspower, received 17 reports of the net breaking. Eleven people sustained injuries including broken bones, back and neck injuries, and contusions.

About 92,000 of the Sportspower BouncePro 14' Trampolines were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide between February 2009 through February 2012 at a retail price around $275. The trampolines have a 6-feet high brown mesh netting and are 14’ in diameter. The UPC codes 68706404210 and 68706404244 were displayed on the trampoline box packaging.

Consumers who have the recalled trampolines should not use the equipment until they obtain and install the free replacement black netting from Sportspower. Consumers can contact the company’s customer service toll-free phone line at (866) 370-2131 or (888)-965-0565 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers can also visit the company’s website at http://www.sportspowerltd.net/recall-bouncepro-14ft.html to inquire about the recall and getting the replacement netting.
