Walmart Recalls 120,000 More Trampolines
Sportspower is recalling nearly 120,000 BouncePro trampolines because the protective netting can break, posing a fall hazard to children. This recall is an expansion of the initial May 2012 recall that affected nearly 92,000 trampolines.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Sportspower have received nine additional reports of the net breaking since the initial recall in May 2012. Five injuries have been reported, including broken bones, back and neck injuries, and contusions.
