On May 10, 2012, the CPSC announced a recall of about 21,000 Banzai Inflatable Pool Slides, a water slide designed for use with in-ground pools. The recalled Banzai Inflatable Pool Slides were sold at Walmart and Toys ‘R Us stores nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009 for about $250. According to the CPSC, the Banzai Inflatable Pool Slide can deflate during use, allowing a user to hit the ground underneath the slide and become injured. The slide is also unstable and can topple over in both still and windy conditions and carries inadequate warnings and instructions, the CPSC said.
According to the Commission, a 29-year-old Colorado mother died in Andover, Mass. after fracturing her neck going down a Banzai in-ground pool water slide which had been placed over the concrete edge of a pool. The victim hit her head at the bottom of the slide because it had partially deflated. The CPSC and the retailers are aware of two other injuries which have occurred in a similar manner, including a 24-year-old man from Springfield, Mo. who became a quadriplegic and a woman from Allentown, Pa. who fractured her neck.
The CPSC has urged consumers to immediately stop using the recalled Banzai Inflatable Pool Slide and return it to the nearest Walmart or Toys ‘R Us for a full refund
