Today Peloton issued a recall and warning for the Tread and Tread + models of its workout machines. This comes after reports of multiple injuries, and the death of one child. While the company initial resisted calls for a formal recall and made suggestions about how to make the Tread safer to use, it has now recalled the machines.
The way that the back of the machine is designed leaves space for small children or pets to become trapped in that area. There have also been reports of issues with the touch screen.
The company is offering a full refund for customers who purchased the product and return it.
If your family has a Tread or Tread + it is recommended that you stop use of it immediately. Return the machine to Peloton. Do not endanger your loved ones or pets.
