WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- When wilmington city pools open this weekend, there's no need to worry about a nationwide recall of pool drains. A city spokeswoman says the pools are not affected by a voluntary recall by eight manufacturers including a North Carolina-based company. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the million recalled covers could pose a possible entrapment hazard to swimmers and bathers. They were manufactured between December 2008 and April 2011. No injuries have been reported. The manufacturers are Arizona-based A&A Manufacturing and Color Match Pool Fittings, California-based AquaStar Pool Products Inc. and Waterway Plastic, Georgia-based Custom Molded Products, New Jersey-based Hayward Pool Products, North Carolina-based Pentair Water Pool and Spa and Tennessee-based Rising Dragon USA. Consumers who have the recalled drain covers should immediately contact the manufacturer to receive a replacement or retrofit.
