This month the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall of all Solowave Tornado brand home playground tube slides with port holes. Apparently, the port hole-type windows pose a risk of laceration when they break. The recall was issued after Solowave received 23 reports of minor injuries to children, including cuts and scrapes with risks of infection, from contact with broken port holes. The Tornado slides are sold separately or in combination with other Solowave play sets sold at Toys R Us and other stores nationwide.
The CPSC is the federal agency that works to protect the American public from personal injuries and deaths associated with the use of the thousands of types of consumer products that fall under the agency’s jurisdiction. According to the CPSC, deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually.
Terrell • Hogan attorney Chris Shakib has recently been consulted by CPSC concerning serious injuries suffered by at least 4 people in Jacksonville and caused by the Ninjasaur inflatable double slide at Big Air on Atlantic Boulevard. The Ninjasaur inflatable double slide is manufactured by Ninja Jump, Inc., in Los Angeles, California. To learn more about the case against Big Air, click here.
