superjumper aug2 lt

California-based Super Jumper Inc. recalled around 23 thousand trampolines that were sold for around eight years after injuries were reported.

In a statement, the company along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that the recalled trampolines' welds on the metal railings can fail, posing fall and injury hazards.

The company has received 97 reports of the welds on the metal railings breaking. Four consumers suffered minor injuries from the incidents, the release said.

The recall involves Super Jumper 14-foot trampolines, and 14-foot and 16-foot combo trampolines with enclosures sold without reinforcement clamps. The logo of Super Jumper is printed on the center of the trampolines' mat.

The withdrawn trampolines were manufactured by Transasia Sporting Goods Manufactory Co., in China, and distributed by Super Jumper. These were sold through a number of online stores including Amazon and Wayfair from November 2011 through June 2019 for between $200 and $400.

Super Jumper urged consumers to immediately stop using the recalled trampolines and contact the company for a free repair kit. It includes reinforcement clamps that clamp around the trampolines' welded joints.
