Sportspower Ltd.
The Danger:
The warning labels on the children's waterslide are inadequate for weight limit and fail to tell consumers never to slide head first. This poses a risk of serious injuries to consumers, including neck injuries. Sportspower has received one report of a man who received a neck injury after sliding down the waterslide head first.

Recalled waterslides have item number INF-1375 and UPC 687064031340 located on the packaging.
Sold At:
Menards Inc. from April 2010 through July 2010 for about $300.
