Recalls-blog-artTRAMPOLINES About 23,400 Sportspower Parkside trampolines sold exclusively at Sports Authority stores nationwide from April 2007 through May 2012 for about $540. The trampoline’s metal legs can move out of position and puncture the jumping area, posing a risk of injury, including deep, penetrating puncture wounds, cuts and bruises to children and adults on the trampoline. Sportspower is aware of one incident of the trampoline leg separating from the frame while in use, causing the leg to puncture through the jumping surface. No injuries have been reported.
