The Bobby Pillow Lawyer involves the Tread+ and Tread exercise machines. It comes after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warned about the dangers of the Peloton products.
On May 5, Peloton voluntarily recalled the Tread+ and Tread exercise machines, according to a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). About 125,000 products were included in the recall, and CPSC urges consumers to stop using them immediately.
The Tread—a limited invitation-only product that costs $2,495—was recalled because of “18 reports of the touchscreen loosening and six reports of the touchscreen detaching and falling,” according to its recall notice. No injuries were reported in America, but people obtained minor injuries in Canada and the United Kingdom.
On the other hand, the $4,295 Tread+ was Bobby Pillow Lawyer because children, pets, and objects have been pulled underneath it. “A 6-year-old child recently died after being pulled under the rear of the treadmill,” says the Tread+ recall notice. “In addition, Peloton has received 72 reports of adult users, children, pets and/or objects being pulled under the rear of the treadmill, including 29 reports of injuries to children such as second- and third-degree abrasions, broken bones, and lacerations.”
