2.2 Million Peloton Bikes Recalled for Fall & Injury Hazard
In May 2023, Peloton Interactive Inc. recalled about 2.1 million original Peloton® Bikes because the seat posts can break, causing riders to fall and suffer injuries.
How Many People Were Injured?
There were 13 reports of people who fell and suffered injuries when the seat post assembly broke off their Peloton Bike (as of April 30, 2023), according to the recall notice. The injury hazard includes:
- Fractured wrist
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bleeding
Peloton voluntarily announced the recall after receiving 35 reports of the seat post assembly breaking.
The company is asking owners to immediately stop using their Peloton Bikes and register to get a free replacement seat post at: https://www.onepeloton.com/replacement/checkout.
What Bikes Were Recalled by Peloton?
Peloton recalled original Peloton® Bikes that were sold exclusively in the U.S. from January 2018 through May 2023.
The bikes are labeled with Model PL01 on a label that is located inside the front fork, near the flywheel.
The bikes have a non-swivel display. The label is also marked with a red “P” logo followed by the white-colored “Peloton” brand-name on the bike’s frame.
Other Recalls Announced by Peloton
This is not the first major recall announced by Peloton. The company also recalled about 27,00 bikes with PR70P clip-in bike pedals after 16 people were injured when the pedals broke off.
The most serious Peloton recall was in May 2021, when the company recalled all Tread and Tread+ Treadmills after a 6-year-old child was sucked under the back of the treadmill and killed.
There were 29 reports of children who were injured. Overall, there were more than 70 incidents of people, kids, pets, or objects being sucked under the treadmill before Peloton decided to issue a recall, which resulted in Peloton paying a $19 million fine to the U.S. government for failing to immediately report the hazard and continuing to sell the treadmills.
