WASHINGTON, D.C. - (KAIT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Bravo Sports announced Friday the recall of nearly 169,000 pogo sticks.

The pogo sticks are being recalled because the bottom of the pogo stick's frame tube can break or come apart, posing laceration and fall hazards.

The company has received 123 reports of incidents involving the pogo sticks, along with 9 reports of injury. Injuries include one report of a child who chipped a tooth and required stitches for a facial laceration, another child who chipped a tooth and one child who fell after the pogo stick broke and knocked out a tooth.

This recall includes the Rocket Stick Pogo, Pop Stick Pogo, Master Stick Pogo and Twin Stick Pogo. These pogo sticks were sold in red, green and blue. These pogo sticks were sold nationwide and online from May 2010 through March 2011 and cost between $25 and $40.

Only pogo sticks with manufacturing date codes between 04/01/2010 - 046HE and 10/31/2010 - 046HE are included in the recall. The manufacturing date code is located on a white label underneath the foot pedal or on the stem of the pogo near the foot pedals.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pogo sticks and contact Bravo Sports to receive a full refund.
