CPSC warns owners of Peloton Tread+ with small kids, pets to stop using treadmill

0


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning owners of the Peloton Tread+ with small children or pets to stop using the treadmill after the fitness company reported a child’s death last month linked to the product.

“CPSC staff believes the Peloton Tread+ poses serious risks to children for abrasions, fractures, and death,” the agency said in a statement issued Saturday, noting that it is aware of 39 incidents, including one death, linked to the treadmill.

The CPSC said they received multiple reports of children becoming “entrapped, pinned, and pulled under the rear roller of the product.”

Tread+ owners with children are urged to stop using the treadmill immediately, the agency said. If consumers must use the product, the CPSC advises doing so in a locked room where children and pets cannot access it while in use.
