WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is working with Nautilus Inc. to recall about 10,000 Schwinn 460 elliptical exercise machines.
The machines were sold between July 2008 and May 2011 for about $1,000. Specialty fitness and a sporting goods retailers sold the machines, as did Nautilus.com and Amazon.com.
The machines are being recalled because the foot plates can detach from the machine during use, posing a fall hazard. Nautilus has received nine reports of foot plates detaching or breaking during use. One incident resulted in a consumer striking his knee.
Consumers should stop using the recalled models immediately and contact Nautilus for a free repair kit that includes an extended warranty.
