Bravo Sports Pogo Stick Recall Issued After Injury Reports
About 169,000 Bravo Sports Pogo Sticks have been recalled after numerous reports of the pogo sticks breaking during use, which could cause an injury for consumers.
The pogo stick recall was announced on March 16 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after the manufacturer received at least 123 reports of problems that resulted in at least nine injuries, including three children who suffered chipped or lost teeth. One child also required stitches for a facial laceration.
According to the CPSC the bottom of the defective pogo sticks and the pins holding the spring in place can break, creating a risk that children or adults using the pogo sticks could cut themselves or fall.
