Peloton issued a recall on the pedals for about 27,000 of its exercise bikes due to a laceration hazard. The in-home fitness company announced the recall on its PR70P clip-in bike pedals in cooperation with the US Consumer Products Safety Commission.
The federal agency advised it received at least 120 reports from consumers about pedal breakages and a number that caused injuries which required medical treatment. Peloton’s announcement acknowledged the axles on the PR70P pedals “can break unexpectedly during use, which may result in injury” and instructed customers to discard the pedals immediately.
The affected pedals were manufactured and fitted on bikes that were sold between July 2013 and May 2016. Any pedal manufactured during that period should be replaced, or else they may break and could cause injury requiring medical treatment.
