On Wednesday November 16, 2022 the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warned consumers to immediately stop using a popular bounce house. The urgent warning was issued after a 4-year-old boy died when his neck was caught in a hoop. “CPSC is aware of one fatal incident where a four-year old boy was found with the hoop of the bounce house around his neck. The hoop became entangled and twisted, constricting the boy’s airway, resulting in strangulation and death,” the agency stated in a press release. The bouncer is sold under the name “My Bouncer Little Castle” and is available online for purchase through Amazon, eBay, Sears and other online retailers, according to the CPSC.
The “My Bouncer Little Castle” measure 88 inches long, 118 inches wide and 72 inches high, CPSC stated. The houses have yellow hoops inside the main portion of the product that failed to meet the standard intended to reduce the risk of accidental entrapment in the inflatable play device. The product has been sold since at least April 2013 and is typically priced between $100 and $300, the agency added. The CPSC said, there was a separate incident where another child was trapped in the hoop but avoided injury. The CPSC is urging consumers not to purchase or sell these bounce houses, to stop using and dispose of these products immediately and to report any product-related injury to SaferProducts.gov.
