Pool Slide Recall
It's warmer, the days are longer and that means more pool time. Recently, the CPSC recalled 21,000 Banzai in-ground pool water slides following on death and two others reported severe injuries.
The CPSC determined that the slides were defective and could deflate suddenly, allowing the user to crash to the ground. The commission also found that the slide is unstable and can topple over in both still and windy conditions.
These slides have been sold at Toya R Us and Walmart.
The CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using the product and bring it to the nearest Toys R Us or Wal-Mart for a refund. Consumers don’t need to bring the entire pool. They can just cut out the two safety warning notices out of the slide and return those for a refund.
