Defective Trampoline Recalled by Feds

November 28, 2012

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in conjunction with Sportspower Ltd, of Hong Kong issued a voluntary recall of the firm's best selling trampoline. More than 24,000 defective trampolines were sold at Sports Authority stores throughout the US during the last 7 years. The trampolines sold for approximately $600.00. What is not surprising is that these dangerous trampolines were made in China.

The hazard presented by these defective products is that the folding legs on which the trampoline sits can move out of position and cut through to the jumping area, creating a risk of severe injury or death, including deep, penetrating puncture wounds, cuts and bruises to children and adults bouncing on the trampoline.

The trampoline being recalled is the Parkside model TR-14FT-COM. The trampolines were sold with an enclosure net and are 14 feet in diameter.

If you purchased one of these trampolines, you should stop using it immediately and contact the manufacturer toll-free at (888) 965-0565, from 9 to 5 Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, or online at www.sportspowerltd.net, or you can email customerservice@sportspowerltd.net for more information.
