Stamina Products, of Springfield, Missouri, agreed to pay out $105,000 as part of a settlement over its allegedly defective mini-trampolines. The charges, brought by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), accused Stamina Products of violating federal law by failing to report known defects in its trampolines in a timely manner.
Between April and June of 2005, Stamina products received reports from eight consumers saying that the trampolines sprang back when opened, causing facial lacerations, bruises, broken teeth, neck pain, and broken facial bones, among other things. The CPSC was not notified until July 2005.
Stamina Products issued a recall for some 670,000 trampolines in April 2006.
