“Jitterbug” cell phones and backyard trampolines are the latest product recalls announced by  the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

“Jitterbug” Cell Phone Recall
Samsung Telecommunications of America is recalling 160,000 “Jitterbug” cell phones because of a defect that could result in  failure to connect to emergency 911 when the phones are in a no-service area and display an “out of range, try again later” message.  

This recall involves “Jitterbug” cell phones model numbers SPH-a110 and SPH-a120 with standard key pads and version BB14 software. No other Samsung wireless phones or software versions are included in this recall.  The recalled cell phones were sold directly to consumers through targeted national advertisements and publications, electronics and drug stores nationwide, and on the Web at www.jitterbug.com from March 2008 through May 2009 for about $150.

Samsung and Jitterbug are directly contacting consumers to schedule a free software upgrade. Consumers should call Samsung if they have not already been contacted. For additional information, contact Samsung toll-free at (866) 304-4980 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, and on Saturday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.samsung.com.

Skywalker Holdings Trampolines
About 60,000 trampolines sold by Skywalker Holdings of Utah have been recalled because of an enclosure problem that creates a fall hazard. According to the CPSC, the straps supporting the top of the trampoline’s enclosure to the poles can fail. The enclosure could drop if these straps break, posing a risk that a user could fall from the trampoline.  Skywalker Holdings has received at least 250 reports of straps breaking. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Skywalker Holdings 13-foot Square Trampoline and Enclosure Combo. The unit has blue spring pads, a black net enclosure, and a jumping mat. “Skywalker Holdings” is printed on a label located under the jumping mat and on the enclosure net.  The recalled trampolines were sold at specialty stores and major retailers nationwide and online from January 2007 through February 2009 for between $400 and $600.

Consumers should immediately stop using the trampolines and contact Skywalker Holdings to obtain a free repair kit.  For additional information, contact Skywalker Holdings toll-free at (866) 603-5867 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit the company’s Web site at www.skywalkertrampolines.com.
