Trampolines

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is recalling about 92,000 Sportspower BouncePro Trampolines because the netting surrounding the trampolines can break, allowing children to fall through.

The recall involves the Sportspower BouncePro 14' Trampolines with brown mesh netting. UPC codes 68706404210, and 68706404244 are printed on the trampoline box. "Sportspower BouncePro 14" and "TR-14-63-A" are printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame.

They were sold exclusively at Walmart from February 2009 through February 2012 for about $275.

Consumers should contact Sportspower to receive replacement black netting for the trampoline.

For more information, contact Sportspower toll-free at (866) 370-2131 or (888) 965-0565 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.sportspowerltd.net/recall-bouncepro-14ft.html.

Bassinets

Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. of Chicago is recalling about 46,000 Tender Vibes & Light Vibes bassinets because the latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but still remain unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing the bassinet to fall.

The recall includes Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets with model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, KB039-CMR1 and Light Vibes bassinet with model number KB043-BNT1. A label with the model/item number of the bassinet is located on one of the legs of the metal frame. The recalled bassinets were manufactured from July 2008 through May 2010.

They were sold nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012 for between about $50 and $100.

Consumers should contact Kolcraft to receive a repair kit and instructions for securing the latches to the metal frame. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child.

For more information, contact Kolcraft toll-free at (888) 624-1908 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.kolcraft.com
