(Gray News) – Thousands of Spalding Momentous basketball goals are being recalled after the company receives injury reports.

Welds in the arm securing the backboard to the post of some EZ portable basketball goals can fail, causing the backboard to fall off and potentially injuring anyone around, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported in a press release.

Spalding received 26 reports of failed welds, including three panels separating completely from the pole.

One person reported the panel falling on their head, while another said they were hit in the shoulder and upper torso.

The recall specifically affects Spalding Momentous EZ Assembly portable basketball goals with the numbers 1010, 1011 or 1012 printed to the right of the CAUTION statement on the front of the backboard.

All panel styles are attached to a black metal pole with a black metal arm. The goals have “Spalding” printed on the front of the base and “6E” molded on the back.

According to CPSC, the basketball goals were sold at Academy and Scheels stores nationwide and online at Spalding.com and Amazon.com from May 2021 to April 2022.

Anyone with this lens should stop using it and contact Spalding to have a technician remove the original arm and fit a new one to the lens system.
