U.S. regulators issue disturbing warning: Keep kids and pets away from Peloton treadmills

Fitness company Peloton has amassed a cult following over the past few years, especially after the pandemic forced everyone to work out at home. While the company is mostly known for their bikes, the brand offers treadmills as well â€" and those machines specifically are now the subject of some controversy. 

On Saturday, federal regulators issued a warning to consumers to stop using the Peloton Tread+ treadmill. The statement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said that there's been multiple incidents of children and pets being "sucked beneath" the machine. 

This urgent warning comes after Peloton CEO John Foley said a child died due to the Tread+ back in March. As of now, the CPSC knows of 39 cases including one death. The agency's statement reads, "CPSC staff believes the Peloton Tread+ poses serious risks to children for abrasions, fractures, and death. In light of multiple reports of children becoming entrapped, pinned, and pulled under the rear roller of the product, CPSC urges consumers with children at home to stop using the product immediately."
