Exercises device company Peloton has been slapped with an urgent safety warning after a child died and many people were injured by using its treadmills.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission asked people with small kids and pets to stop using the devices immediately, following 39 reports of small children and a pet getting hurt by the Tread+ treadmill, which sells for upward of $4,000.
"In light of multiple reports of children becoming entrapped, pinned, and pulled under the rear roller of the product, CPSC urges consumers with children at home to stop using the product immediately," said the federal commission.
The commission also said that the machines pose a risk for kids and pets even while an adult is running on the treadmills. It believes that the risk cannot be avoided by locking the device when not in use.
Peloton issued a statement where it mentioned that it believes the Consumer Product Safety Commission's warning is "inaccurate and misleading."
"The Tread+ is safe for Members to use in their homes and comes with safety instructions and warnings to ensure its safe use. Like all motorized exercise equipment, the Tread+ can pose hazards if the warnings and safety instructions are not followed. The Tread+ is not for children under 16. Peloton warns Members not to let children use the Tread+ and to keep children, pets, and objects away from the Tread+ at all times. Any owner of a treadmill – whether made by Peloton or not – should follow these warnings, as they are included in the applicable safety standards, which the Peloton Tread+ meets.”, it mentioned in the statement.
