Peloton Recalls All Treadmills Following 1 Death, 70+ Injuries

Peloton Tread & Tread+ Treadmill Recalls: Do You Have a Claim?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled all Peloton Tread and Tread+ treadmills on May 5, 2021, after one child died and over 70 others were injured from these machines. The popular exercise equipment company issued a recall only after ignoring an urgent warning from the CSPC regarding its Tread+ products back in April and instead, refusing to recall its Tread+ treadmills.

What are the risks of using these products? Well, adults, children, pets, and objects could be sucked underneath the rear end of the treadmill and suffer injuries or death.

In May of this year, Peloton finally assumed responsibility for its defective products and handled the situation as it should have in April. The company recalled about 125,000 Tread+ and Tread treadmills and CEO John Foley issued an apology for ignoring the CSPC’s initial recall request.

The company is offering full refunds to customers who reach out before November 2022 or will move these machines to a locked room at no charge. Peloton has also released a software update for all of its treadmills, which includes a “Tread Lock” feature that stops and locks the belt after 45 seconds of not being used outside of a class. This feature requires customers to enter a 4-digit code to unlock and restart the belt.

Unfortunately, this may not be enough, as much damage has already been done to consumers who were injured from Peloton’s Tread or Tread+ treadmills. Our personal injury lawyer is closely monitoring the situation and accepting cases concerning this matter. If you or a loved one was injured from using a Tread or Tread+ product purchased from Peloton, reach out to our attorney to learn if you have a claim. If you do have a claim, we will fight for maximum compensation for your pain and suffering. We won’t settle for less than what you deserve.

Peloton Tread+ Recall

The Peloton Tread+ treadmill with model number TR01 has been recalled. The CPSC advises consumers to immediately stop using the product, which was launched as the Peloton Tread in 2018 but renamed Tread+ in September 2020. To locate the Tread+ model number, find the black sticker located on the end cap in the front of the treadmill deck. Other details of the product include:

  • Running space: 67 inches
  • HD touchscreen: 32 inches
  • Slatted belt
  • Monitor and side rails have a Peloton logo

Peloton Tread Recall

About 1,050 units of the Peloton Tread treadmills with model number TR02 were recalled in the US. You can find the Peloton Tread model number on a black sticker located on the end cap in the front of the treadmill deck. The reason behind this product recall is that the touchscreens on these treadmills can detach and fall, creating a risk of injury to users. 18 reports have been filed so far due to the touchscreen loosening and 6 reports of the touchscreen detaching and falling have been filed. Although these reports do not include injuries in the US, that doesn’t mean users in the US are in the clear.

See below for product details:

  • Running space: 59 inches
  • HD touchscreen: 23.8 inches
  • Non-slatted belt
  • Monitor and side rails have a Peloton logo

Again, you have before November 2222 to contact Peloton if you’d like a refund for your defective Tread or Tread+ product. But if you suffered an injury and want to pursue a claim, let us know so we can explain your options.
