Peloton Tread treadmill is being recalled by Peloton due to injury risk

Peloton Tread Treadmill Is Recalled Due to Injury RiskPeloton is recalling about 1,050 Peloton Tread treadmills in the United Stated and about 5,400 in Canada.

The touchscreen on the treadmill 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.

No injuries have been reported in the U.S. There have been reports of minor injuries such as abrasions, minor cuts, and bruises in Canada and the United Kingdom.

This recall involves Peloton Tread treadmills with model TR02. The recalled Tread has a running space of 59 inches, a 23.8-inch high definition touchscreen console, and a non-slatted running belt.

The model number TR02 is printed on a black sticker located on the end cap in the front of the treadmill deck. The treadmills have a touchscreen and are black with the Peloton logo on the monitor and the side rails.

The treadmill was a limited invitation-only release online at onepeloton.com and at Peloton showrooms from November 2020 through March 2021. The cost was about $2,495.

This product is different than the Peloton Tread+ that was also recalled by the CPSC on May 5, 2021. Children, pets, and objects can be pulled underneath the Tread+ deck, posing a risk of injury or death.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Peloton Tread treadmills and contact Peloton for a full refund, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and company advise.

Peloton is offering consumers who don’t want a refund the option of waiting for a free inspection and repair that will secure the touchscreen to the treadmill to help prevent future incidents. The CPSC and Peloton will provide an update when a timeline on that repair is made available.

For more information, call Peloton at 866-679-9129 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET on weekends or visit www.onepeloton.com and click on “Product Recalls” at the bottom of the page.
