Regent Sports Recalls 190,000 Soccer Goal Nets Following Death of a Child

The fixed knot flexible openings pose a head/neck entrapment and strangulation hazard.

Regent Sports has recalled about 190,000 MacGregor and Mitre Folding Soccer Goals. The fixed knot flexible openings in the soccer goal net can pose a head and neck entrapment or strangulation hazard to young children. Regent Sports and CPSC have received two reports of head entanglement, including the strangulation death of a 20-month-old child who was found with his arm and neck tangled in the soccer goal net.

Both soccer goals have a foldable white frame with a white net that is attached by Velcro strips. When upright, the MacGregor goal measures 6 feet wide by 3 feet high and the Mitre net measures 8 feet wide by 6 feet high. Each has a recalled net with squares measuring 5 inches on each side. The MacGregor soccer goal has model number 97236 printed on the assembly instructions and UPC code number 029807972365 printed on the net's packaging. The Mitre soccer goal has model number 89186 printed on the assembly instructions and UPC code number 029807891864 printed on the net's packaging. Nets manufactured after April 2007 with 4 inch by 4 inch square openings are not included in the recall. The goals were made in China and sold at Wal-Mart, Ace Hardware and sports and toy stores nationwide from May 2002 through May 2008 for $26.

Consumers should stop using the recalled soccer goal nets immediately and return them to Regent Sports to receive a free replacement net. For additional information, contact Regent Sports at 877-516-9707 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
