The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recently advised consumers to avoid using the Peloton Tread+ treadmill around small children or pets. This advisement follows an admission from Peloton that an accident involving one of its treadmills had resulted in the death of a child. Peloton, an exercise equipment manufacturer and exercise class platform, initially achieved popularity with an exercise bike, before expanding its equipment offerings to include the Tread+ and Tread treadmills.

The CPSC states that it has reports of 39 separate incidents involving Peloton devices, along with other reports of pets and objects getting sucked underneath Peloton treadmills. The agency also released a video of a child getting stuck underneath a running Peloton treadmill. The agency is now advising consumers to keep their Peloton treadmills in locked rooms, clear away nearby objects, unplug the treadmill when not in use, and keep the activation key out of reach of small children.
