Child Death Prompts Peleton to Recall Treadmills


Peleton Interactive, the fitness company that sells internet-connected exercise bikes and treadmills, has recalled more than 125,000 treadmills and paused sales after the machines were linked to the death of a child and reports of other injuries. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission also announced a separate recall of the Peloton Tread and Tread+ treadmills and urged the public to immediately cease use of the machines. Peleton’s voluntary recall comes three weeks after the CPSC warned customers about the risks of using the machines and more than a month after a child died in an accident involving one of the treadmills.
