Trampolines Recalled by Sportspower Limited Due to Fall Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Walmart

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Sportspower Limited, of Hong Kong, China, announced a voluntary recall of about 92,000 Sportspower BouncePro 14-foot Trampolines sold exclusively at Wal-Mart from February 2009 through February 2012. The netting surrounding these trampolines can break, allowing children to fall through the netting and be injured. Sportspower has received 17 reports of the net breaking, resulting in 11 injuries including broken bones, back and neck injuries, and contusions.

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 feet high on the perimeter of the trampoline. The netting is designed to contain individuals bouncing on the trampoline.

Bassinets Recalled by Kolcraft Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Ill., announced a voluntary recall of about 46,000 Kolcraft Tender Vibes & Light Vibes bassinet sold at mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012.

The latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but still remain unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing the bassinet to fall and the infant to be injured.

CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches that detached from the bassinet frame. One infant received a bruised cheek when the bassinet detached from the metal frame and landed sideways on the floor with the infant inside.

This recall includes Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets with model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, KB039-CMR1 and Light Vibes bassinet with model number KB043-BNT1. A label with the model/item number of the bassinet is located on one of the legs of the metal frame. The recalled bassinets were manufactured from July 2008 through May 2010. The words "Kolcraft Tender Vibes" or "Kolcraft Light Vibes" is located on the removable music box which is attached to the side of the bassinet.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact the firm by phone or online to receive a repair kit and instructions for securing the latches to the metal frame. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a crib that meets current safety standards or play yard depending on the child's age.

For additional information, contact Kolcraft at 888-624-1908 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.kolcraft.com
