Peloton, the popular fitness equipment company, has issued a safety recall for 2.2 million of its exercise bikes in the US and Canada. The recall includes both the Peloton Tread+ and Peloton Bike+ models due to safety concerns.
Reasons for the recall
The recall was issued due to safety concerns with the Peloton Tread+ and Peloton Bike+ models. The Peloton Tread+ was previously recalled in May 2021 after the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a warning about the product following reports of injuries and a child’s death. The CPSC and Peloton have now advised customers to stop using the affected products immediately.
Impacts on Peloton and its customers
The recall is likely to have a significant impact on Peloton and its customers. Peloton has already suffered a significant blow to its reputation due to the safety concerns with its Tread+ product earlier this year. The recall is also likely to be costly for Peloton, with estimates suggesting that it could cost the company tens of millions of dollars.
