-- The Federal Consumer Safety Product Commission (CPSC) today published the Wilson K Four Tennis Racket along with other dangerous consumer products.
The victim was a child who had to undergo shoulder surgery after suffering serious injury from using a Wilson K FOUR FACTOR tennis racket which is sold currently at dealers such as Amazon.com, Tenniswarehouse.com, Midwestsports.com, holabirdsports.com, and up to 5000 specialty retail stores nationwide.
The report is published on the CPSC's website at http://saferproducts.gov/ViewIncident/1300929.
The Commission publishes RECALLED PRODUCTS and could impose new SAFETY STANDARDS on TENNIS RACKETS on the basis of a Writ of Mandamus compelling safety standards.
The CPSC Writ of Mandamus Brief reported "Racket shock" causing thousands of children to suffer permanent arm injuries and injuries severe enough to cause millions of players to quit the sport of tennis. ITF's Head of Science & Technical Commission,(2006 issue of British Journal of Sports Medicine)
The Federal Agency began investigations after a Billion-Dollar Product Recall Class-Action Lawsuit was filed against the Wilson Sporting Goods Company, on behalf of millions of recreational tennis players, including children, who have suffered arm injuries (elbow, forearm, wrist, shoulder).
The case charged that Wilson makes air-injected (hollow) tennis rackets which contributed to hundreds of millions of elbow, shoulder and wrist injuries, with a vastly growing number of children, since the inception of air-injected rackets in 1978.
The suit asked the Court for redress, relief, $1 billion in punitive damages and calls for a Recall of millions of air injected tennis rackets as a "Class B Hazard" under Consumer Safety Product Commission regulations due to the high likelihood of users procuring tennis elbow or shoulder or other arm injuries.
The case claimed that the defendant knowingly manufactured the unsafe rackets without warning of possible side effects. The governing body of the sport - the International Tennis Federation -- states that half of all recreational tennis players suffer from tennis elbow. http://www.itftennis.com/scienceandmedicine/injury-clinic/tennis-injuries/tennis-elbow.
