The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission this week announced a recall of 169,000 Pogo Sticks distributed by Bravo Sports, of Santa Fe Springs, Calif.
The bottom of the pogo stick's frame tube can break or come apart and a pin holding the spring in place can break, posing laceration and fall hazards to consumers, the commission said.
The distributor of the Chinese made toy has received 123 reports of incidents involving the pogo sticks, including nine reports of injuries. One child chipped a tooth and required stitches for a facial laceration. Another chipped a tooth and one child fell after the pogo stick broke and knocked out a tooth.
The recall involves the Rocket Stick Pogo, Pop Stick Pogo, Monster Stick Pogo and Twin Stick Pogo. They were sold in red, green and blue colors.
They were sold by mass merchandisers nationwide and online from May 2010 through March 2011 for between $25 and $40.
