The CPSC announced Wednesday that Peloton agreed to recall its Tread and Tread+ treadmills following an April 17 safety warning by the agency. The CPSC said Tread+ treadmills have been involved in 72 reports of people, pets, or objects being pulled under the rear of the treadmill.
Peloton is recalling about 1,050 Peloton Tread treadmills in the U.S. and about 5,400 in Canada. The treadmill's touchscreen can detach and fall, posing a risk of injury to consumers. The company is aware of 18 reports of the touchscreen loosening and six reports of the touchscreen detaching and falling.
After initially refusing recommendations by the CPSC to recall the Peloton Tread+ treadmill, Peloton agreed Wednesday to recall about 125,000 of the treadmills. Adult users, children, pets, and objects can be pulled underneath the rear of the treadmill, posing a risk of injury or death.
