Consumer Alert: Peloton recalling all treadmills after death, several dozen injuries
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Regulators with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday fitness equipment manufacturer Peloton has set up two separate voluntary recalls of its Tread+ and Tread treadmills.
The recalls are due to at least one reported death and more than 70 injuries being reported for small children and a pet.
Both Peloton and the CPSC urge anyone who bought either treadmill to immediately stop using it and contact the company for a full refund or another qualified remedy.
The CPSC says Peloton has also stopped the sale and distribution of the Tread+ and continues to work on additional hardware modifications.
The company previously warned consumers about the treadmills in April.
The Tread only sold as part of a limited invitation-only release from about November 2020 to about March 2021 and the company is currently working on a repair to be offered to Tread owners in the coming weeks.
