About 92,000 trampolines sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores have been recalled because safety nets surrounding them can break.
The voluntary recall is for Sportspower BouncePro 14-foot trampolines with brown mesh netting around them. The netting, which is about six feet high, is designed to contain people bouncing on the trampoline.
The company has received 17 reports of the net breaking. Eleven people have suffered injuries including broken bones, back and neck injuries and contusions.
UPC codes 68706404210 or 68706404244 are printed on the product box. “Sportspower BouncePro 14” and “TR-14-63-A” are printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame.
The recalled trampolines were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores between February 2009 and February 2012 for about $275.
Consumers are advised to stop using the trampolines immediately. Contact Sportspower to receive replacement netting for the trampoline. Their customer service hotline is toll-free at (866) 370-2131 or (888)-965-0565 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday.
