Peloton and safety agency finally agree on repair for recalled Peloton treadmills

Peloton Treadmill Safety GuardRemember when 125,000 Peloton Tread+ treadmills were recalled after the death of a child and dozens of incidents of children, pets, and objects being pulled under the rear roller?

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Peloton have finally agreed on a rear guard repair for the recalled Tread+ treadmill. The repair eliminates possible entrapment near the treadmill’s rear roller. The guard features a breakaway design that moves it away from the treadmill when it comes into contact with a person or object, shutting off power to the treadmill and slowing down the belt.

While the guard is being manufactured, consumers can register for a fall 2023 delivery of the free repair at

For questions, call Peloton at 866-679-9129.

Consumers can also request a full refund until Nov. 6, 2023. Refunds will be prorated after that.

Since the May 2021 recall, there have been 279 additional incidents and 61 additional injuries. To date, in addition to the reported death, Peloton has received 351 incident reports of pull-unders, including 90 reports of injuries.

Again, this shows why it’s so important to keep on recalls.
