The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Stamina Products Inc., of Springfield, Missouri, have announced the voluntary recall of about 668,000 InMotion Trampolines. Consumers are warned not to assemble or disassemble this product until they have the revised assembly instructions.The danger to consumers is that if a person assembles the trampoline alone and the outside rail is released momentarily, the trampoline can snap back into the folded position and strike the consumer, posing a risk of serious injury.
The recalled trampolines were manufactured in China and sold at Wal-Mart, Play It Again Sports, and various other retail outlets nationwide and online sellers, including Wal-Mart.com, from August 2000 through March 2006 for about $20.
To date, Stamina has received 13 reports of injuries including two concussions; a rotated disc; two reports of facial bone fractures; six injuries requiring stitches to the forehead, eyebrow, lip and/or chin; a corneal abrasion; and two reports of chipped teeth.
The round, black mini-trampoline measures 36 inches across and has six 7 Ã‚Â½-inch long metal legs. The mini-trampoline is used for in-place jogging and other cardiovascular exercises.
Most mini-trampolines that have model numbers containing 35-1625 are included in the recall. Model 35-1625C and 35-1625CW units are not included in the recall.
The model number along with the customer service and serial numbers are stamped on a black and white label on one of the legs containing the name Ã¢â‚¬Å“Stamina.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Consumers should not assemble or disassemble these mini-trampolines until they have the revised assembly instructions. Consumers should contact Stamina immediately for new assembly instructions.
