If your kids are bouncing away their excess energy on the trampoline in the backyard this summer, you may want to check the brand because some 23,000 trampolines are facing a recall.
The brand in question is Super Jumper, whose trampolines are being recalled for “posing fall and injury hazards” due to failing legs, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announcement.
The manufacturer has reportedly received nearly 100 reports of metal railings breaking on its products. Only four minor injuries have been reported, according to USA Today.
The recall primarily affects the Super Jump 14-foot trampoline, but its 14-foot and 16-foot combination trampolines with enclosures that were sold without reinforcement clamps are also being recalled.
These trampolines have been reportedly sold online by Amazon, Wayfair, Hayneedle and Overstock between November 2011 and June 2019.
Consumers that have purchased any of these trampolines should stop using it immediately and should contact Super Jumper for a repair kit.
