About 1,700 Spalding in-ground basketball hoops are being recalled. The bolts at the base can fail, causing the unit to fall, possibly striking bystanders.
The item is being recalled by Russell Brands LLC, of Alexander City, AL, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The recall involves Spalding in-ground basketball hoops with a supporting pole and a clear backboard. The hoops were sold at MC Sports, Academy Sports, Dunhams Sports and
other sporting goods stores nationwide for between $600 and $1,700.
They were made in China.
No injuries were reported.
