Company Recalls Skateboard RampsNov 7, 2002 | AP
A Toronto company is recalling about 88,000 plastic skateboard ramps because they can crack and cause riders to fall.
A boy riding a scooter on one of the ramps from Gen-X Sports Inc. broke his collarbone when the ramp cracked and he fell, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The black ramps were sold from March to September 2002 for between $20 and $40, mostly in the United States at Kmart, Academy Sports & Outdoors, The Sports Authority and some smaller sports stores. The recalled ramps the Rage SSD (model 310937) and Skate Attack SSD (model 312912) are 39-inches long, 28-inches wide and up to 12 inches high.
