Sporting goods retailer Spalding has recalled a line of portable basketball hoops, citing the risk of impact injury from a falling backboard.
The Spalding Momentous EZ Portable Basketball Goal has a defective arm connecting the backboard to the support pole. As a result, the backboard can fall, “posing an impact injury risk to consumers,” according to a recall issued through the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC).
Spalding sold 13,400 of the basketball hoops at Scheels and Academy stores, as well as on its own website and at Amazon.com. The recalled goals sold between May 2021 and April 2022.
The company received 26 reports of “weld failures,” including three instances where the backboard fell, resulting in at least two injuries. Consumers who bought the basketball hoops are instructed to stop using the equipment immediately and contact Spalding for a repair with a new attaching arm.
