After the death of a six-year-old child, as well as 29 other reports of injuries from Peloton treadmills, Peloton has announced recalls of Peloton treadmill products. This comes after the CPSC told people with children and pets to stop using the Tread+ model. Consumer advocates welcome the recall of the treadmills, although they say the move could have come sooner. Peloton burst onto the fitness scene with its treadmills, but with a string of injuries and one child death, safety advocates are applauding the decision to recall the machines.

The CEO of Peleton, John Foley, said that they made the right decision when they opted to recall the treadmills. In a statement, Foley said that their first decision not to recall the products was incorrect. Peloton is developing software to lock the treads when not in use and to require a passcode to unlock the devices. Until that technology is available, Peloton representatives say that owners should stop using the machines immediately. The company is offering returns and refunds.

Consumer advocates have praised the recall for promoting safety and criticized the recall for taking rather long to be issued. “It shouldn’t have required so much time and effort to get this product recalled,” remarked William Wallace, safety policy manager at Consumer Reports. In addition to the child who died after being pulled under a machine, there have been reports of broken bones and cuts.

Peloton has sold more than 125,000 units since September 2018.

A similar recall was issued specifically to owners of the Tread model, from reports of the touchscreen falling, causing injury risk.
