Bravo Sports trampolines are being recalled after the company received 247 reports of the top rails bending or breaking during normal use, leading to at least four injuries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The trampolines -- the type used in backyards across the country -- were sold between January 2007 and last month for $200-$400.
About 160,000 of the trampolines are being recalled over this dangerous defect. They are the AirZone and Variflex models with the following numbers: 137083 (with wheels), 137536, 137683, 138088, 138467, 138472, 138489, 139275, 139283, 139284, 139300 and 139706. Consumers can find the model number on the safety label sewn to the pad cover. The Chinese-made trampolines are either blue, yellow or red.
Those who have the trampolines should stop using them and contact Bravo Sports for instructions on how to inspect the trampoline for damage and to get new assembly instructions, as well as free replacement parts for rails and legs on damaged trampolines.
Call Bravo Sports at (877)-500-2459 weekdays between 10:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
