WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Liquid Motion waterslides

Units: About 1,500

Manufacturer: Sportspower Ltd., of Hong Kong

Hazard: The warning labels on the children’s waterslide are inadequate for weight limit and fail to tell consumers never to slide head first. This poses a risk of serious injuries to consumers, including neck injuries.

Incidents/Injuries: Sportspower has received one report of a man who received a neck injury after sliding down the waterslide head first.

Description: This recall involves Sportspower Liquid Motion waterslides. Consumers inflate the waterslide with air and spray it with water for sliding. They are used on the ground, not at the pool. The waterslides are blue and yellow and measure about 18 feet long by 9 feet high by 5 feet wide. A “Liquid Motion by Sportspower” logo is printed on the side. Recalled waterslides have item number INF-1375 and UPC 687064031340 located on the packaging.

Sold exclusively at: Menards Inc. from April 2010 through July 2010 for about $300.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled waterslides and contact Sportspower to receive new labels to affix to the waterslide. The labels warn consumers not to use the waterslide if they are older than 13 years of age and/or weigh more than 100 lbs. The labels also warn consumers never to slide head first.

Consumer Contact: Sportspower; toll-free at (888) 965-0565, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, online at www.sportspowerltd.net or email customerservice@sportspowerltd.net for more information.
