The tennis table can collapse when consumers lean against the table, posing a fall hazard.
This recall involves the Escalade Sports Ping-Pong T8482F 4-piece AVENGER Table Tennis Table. When extended, the table measures 108 inches long by 60 inches wide. It folds to 60 inches long by 22 inches wide. The table includes a mesh net that is 60 inches in length. The model number is located on the underside of the table tennis top printed on a white label. “PING-PONG” is painted on the tabletop.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tennis tables and contact Escalade Sports for a free repair kit and installation instructions or a full refund. Escalade Sports requires consumers to cut the net in several places, disassemble the table, and provide pictures to receive a refund. Consumers should not return the recalled tables to Target and should contact Escalade Sports for repair or full refund.
Escalade Sports has received 78 reports of the tables collapsing, including four reports of minor injuries of scratches and bruises.
This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
