A trampoline sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores has been recalled, announced the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Sportspower Limited, today announced a voluntary recall of the Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampoline, sold exclusively at Wal-Mart.

Approximately 92,000 of the trampolines have been recalled. The Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampoline, imported and sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores across the nation, are being imported because the netting surrounding the trampolines can break, allowing children to fall through the netting and be injured. At this time, Sportspower has received 17 reports of the net breaking, resulting in 11 injuries. These injuries have included broken bones, back injuries, neck injuries and contusions.

The Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampoline is manufactured by Sportspower Limited of Hong Kong, China.

The recall involves the Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampolines with brown mesh netting. UPC codes 68706404210, and 68706404244 are printed on the trampoline box. “Sportspower BouncePro 14” and “TR-14-63-A” are printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame. The trampolines are surrounded by brown netting measuring about 6’ high on the perimeter of the trampoline. The netting is designed to contain individuals bouncing on the trampoline.

The recalled Sportspower BouncePro 14’ Trampolines were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide from February 2009 through February 2012.

Sportspower Limited has indicated that consumers should stop using the trampolines immediately and contact the company to receive replacement black netting for the trampoline.
