WAS MY HOME GYM RECALLED?
From time to time, as a particular brand and model
of fitness equipment is widely distributed, is used in various environments
and is used with various patterns of use, design flaws or possible dangerous
component failures become evident. When they do and if the failure could
result in injury, they fall under the regulation of the Consumer Product
Safety Commission. If the CPSC orders a recall of your home gym, treadmill,
elliptical cross trainer, stationary bike, indoor rower, or any other exercise
device, they will notify the fitness equipment manufacturer, who will attempt
to contact you directly or through the selling dealer, if possible. However,
they may not have your correct, current contact information.
If you would like to check to see if any
of your home gym or other fitness equipment, whether it is strength or cardio
equipment, has been recalled, visit http://www.recalls.gov and
follow the instructions. If your fitness equipment has been recalled the website
will direct you, as to how to get your product repaired.
Product recalls of exercise equipment are
serious issues. As an example, failure to address a recall of a home gym
could result in injury or even death to the user.
