Over 200,000 Trampolines Recalled

Sportspower is expanding a past recall on trampolines that they had done in May,2012 where 92,000 trampolines were recalled. On January 31, 2013 Sportspower recalled an additional 120,000 trampolines. 
The trampolines are being called back because the enclosed netting around them can break, resulting in the possibility of children to fall through the mesh and become injured.
Sportspower has received 9 additional reports to the 17 reports they received in May of the nets breaking and children falling out. There have been 16 total reports of children being injured, including, broken bones, concussion and back and neck injuries.
This recall involves Sportspower BouncePro 14′ Trampolines with model TR1686-TPR. UPC code 687064045552 or 687064042100 is printed on the product’s box. ‘Sportspower BouncePro 14’ is printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame.
The trampolines were sold at Walmart stores nationwide from February 2009 through March 2011 for about $300. Consumers should immediately stop using the trampolines and contact Sportspower to receive a replacement enclosure netting.
