Children's trampolines recalled due to fall hazard
Company: Handlebars can break away during use
Aqua-Leisure announced a voluntary recall of its First Fitness Kid's Trampolines with Handlebars after it was determined that metal fatigue can cause the handlebar to break away during use, posing a risk of laceration from exposed metal surfaces or other injury from a fall.
In a news release, the company said it has received four reports of handlebars breaking from the metal connection joint during use. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves child-size toy trampolines that have a red and blue metal handlebar, a blue nylon deck guard and a black jumping deck. "First Fitness" is embossed on the jumping deck in white letters.
The trampolines can be identified by model number FF-6902TR and Toys R Us SKN 491463. The model and store numbers can be found on the lower right corner of the back of the packaging. A sewn-in tag on the bottom of the deck lists the factory date code of five numbers followed by "GLTX."
About 40,000 trampolines were sold exclusively at Toys "R" Us stores nationwide from September 2010 through April 2012, for between $45 and $70.
Consumers were urged to immediately take the recalled trampolines from children and contact Aqua-Leisure's recall hotline at 888-912-7087 for a full refund.
