Description The basketball sets with nets that need to be replaced come in a variety of colors and include a nylon net and plastic or metal hoop attached to a plastic, youth-sized pole.

Franklin Sports recalled basketball sets are called “Slam Dunk Youth Basketball Set.” Huffy Sports recalled basketball sets are called “Youth One-On-One.” Lifetime Products recalled basketball sets are called “Shoot Case.” The manufacturer’s name is on the backboard, base or hoop of each toy.
