Peloton Recall Treadmill Following Child Death

Earlier this month, Peloton announced the recall of its Tread+ and Tread treadmills just weeks after fighting the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for warning of several injuries and a child death linked to the product. The commission previously issued an urgent warning to consumers after receiving dozens of complaints of adults, children, pets, and other objects being pulled under the rear of the treadmills while in use. A consumer’s home surveillance video recently released showed their child getting pulled and stuck under the machine while the spinning belt of the treadmill continued to pull the child further underneath. The recall extends to all Tread+ and Tread models spanning approximately 125,000 different machines.

Peloton previously rejected the commission’s initial warnings claiming they were “inaccurate and misleading.” Since the recall, however, Peloton has gone back on its statement stating it “made a mistake” and apologized for not working “more productively with [the commission] from the outset.”
