About 800 Helix pool slides have been recalled by S.R. Smith LLC, of Canby, Oregon. A child can fall off the side of the slide before reaching the pool entry point, posing a fall hazard that can result in serious injury. This recall involves Helix residential pool slides with serial numbers from SR-HX14-01001 to SR-HX13-01488 and SR-HX14-01001 to SR-HX14-01602. “S.R. Smith,” “Helix” and the serial number can be found on the product label located on the top right side of the slide near the staircase rail. The recalled slides are 7-feet, 4 inches-tall at the highest and have a helix (corkscrew) shape to its slide or flume. The firm has received 16 reports of users falling from the slide, resulting in 15 reports of injuries including a 4-year-old girl who sustained a concussion. Other reports included damaged/loosened teeth, cuts to the chin that required stitches, bruising and scrapes.

The slides were sold at In The Swim, Leslies Swimming Pool Supply, SCP Distributors and other pool product distributors nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Intheswim.com between May 2013 and March 2015 for about $3.000. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled slides and contact S.R. Smith for a free slide rail extension kit that will increase the height of the rail sides.
