The popular at-home fitness company, Peloton, has issued a recall on approximately 27,000 of its clip-in pedals on certain bike models. The recall affects bikes that were sold between July 2013 and May 2016 that have the PR70P Clip-in Pedal.
According to the CPSC recall notice, “PR70P Clip-In Pedals can break unexpectedly during use, causing laceration injuries,” and Peloton “has received 120 consumer reports of pedal breakages, including 16 reports of leg injuries. Five of the injuries required medical care, such as stitches to the lower leg.”
The pedals can be recognized by the following:
- They carry the Peloton logo.
- The word Peloton is molded into the body of the pedal.
- An orange Peloton symbol and the word “Peloton” are printed on top of the cleat binding.
What to do if your Peloton is affected by the pedal recall.
Consumers should immediately discontinue using the defective clip-in pedals, and have new pedals installed. New pedals can be ordered from Peloton by submitting a Pedal Request Form, or simply using the link in the email you may have already received informing you of the recall. You can also call the company directly at 866-679-9129 or 844-410-0141 to request replacement pedals.
Florida law allows someone who has been injured due to an unsafe or defective product to receive compensation for his or her damages. However, given the fact that most large companies employ legal teams who are experienced in fighting back against any lawsuits and the complex nature of these cases, it is almost always recommended that an injured party contact an attorney who has experience in handling product liability cases.
