Sportspower Trampoline being recalled for repair - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - Around 23,400 trampolines that were sold exclusively at the Sports Authority are being recalled for repair. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of the trampolines that were manufactured by Sportspower Ltd., of Hong Kong. To remedy the problem, the company is offering a free repair kit.

The recall was announced after one incident; one of a legs on the trampoline separated from the frame while being used. The problem caused a leg to puncture through the jumping area. The company is not aware of any injuries related to this recall.

The concern is that other trampolines that the company manufactured might have the metal leg move out of position. This can cause the jumping area to be punctured and could lead to a person using the trampoline being seriously injured with penetrating wounds, cuts, and bruises.
