DETAILS: Sportspower BouncePro 14' Trampolines imported by Wal-Mart Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Ark. and manufactured by Sportspower Limited, of Hong Kong, China; sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide from February 2009 through February 2012. The trampolines are surrounded by brown netting measuring about 6 feet high on the perimeter of the trampoline. "Sportspower BouncePro 14" is printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame.

WHY: The netting surrounding these trampolines can break, posing a fall hazard that may result in injury of the child.

HOW MANY: About 92,000.

BASSINETS

DETAILS: Kolcraft Tender Vibes & Light Vibes bassinets imported by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Ill.; sold at mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012. The words "Kolcraft Tender Vibes" or "Kolcraft Light Vibes" is located on the removable music box attached to the side of the bassinet. The bassinets were manufactured in China.

WHY: 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, posing a fall hazard that may result in injury of the infant.

INCIDENTS: CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches that detached from the bassinet frame. One infant received a bruised cheek when the bassinet detached from the metal frame and landed sideways on the floor with the infant inside.

HOW MANY: About 46,000.

FOR MORE: Contact Kolcraft at 888-624-1908 Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT, or visit the firm's website at http://www.kolcraft.com.
