Peloton recalls treadmills after the death of 1 child, multiple injuries
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Peloton announced this morning two separate voluntary recalls of Peloton’s Tread+ and Tread treadmills, following the death of a child and other incidents.
Consumers who have purchased either treadmill should immediately stop using it and contact Peloton for a full refund, or other qualified remedy.
Peloton has also stopped sale and distribution of the Tread+ and continues to work on additional hardware modifications. CPSC previously warned consumers about the Tread+ in April.
In the United States, the Tread was 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.
