Peloton Recall Tread and Tread Plus Treadmills; Child Fatality, 39 Injured

Peloton to Stop Selling, Distributing Tread and Tread Plus Machines

 Peloton Tread and Tread+ Treadmills Recalled; Child Fatality, 39 Injured Due to reports of injuries and one child’s death, Peloton will voluntarily recall and immediately stop selling and distributing both the Tread Plus and Tread products in the United States.

Additionally, the company is refunding consumers who wish to return their treadmills,

Peloton initially refused to recall the $1,900 treadmills, but Peloton CEO John Foley reversed the decision and acknowledged the company “made a mistake” after weeks of discussions with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. “I want to be clear, Peloton made a mistake in our initial response to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s request that we recall the Tread+,” he said.

Just a few weeks ago, the federal safety commission issued an “urgent warning” for certain Peloton Tread+ treadmills. The CPSC received 39 accident reports and one report of a child’s death. Children were pinned, trapped or pulled under the rear rollover of the machine. Now, together with the equipment manufacturer, there are two safety recalls.

Touchscreen May Detach, Fall

The CPSC issued a second recall for Peloton’s Tread treadmills, model TR02 due to a risk its touchscreeen may become loose, detach and fall. There are roughly a dozen reports of these touchscreens coming loose and six reports of them coming off and falling. If this happens, there is a risk of injury to consumers.

So far none of the injuries were in the U.S. However, there were reports of cuts and bruises in Canada and the United Kingdom.

Consumers with this model of Peloton’s treadmill may have it inspected and repaired or request a full refund. Furthermore, consumers should stop using the treadmills immediately and contact the company.

Peloton sold the Tread in the United States as part of a limited invitation-only release. Sales began in November, 2020 through March, 2021.

In the coming weeks, the company is working on how to offer repairs to Tread owners who wish to keep their treadmills.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
