Peloton and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) extended the refund period for the Peloton Tread+ for another year.
In May 2021, Peloton and the CPSC recalled the Peloton Tread+ after reports of injuries and the death of a child.
As part of the recall, Tread+ owners were given until November 6, 2022, to receive a full refund.
Tread Plus owners now have until November 6, 2023, to receive a full refund or, for consumers who prefer to keep the Tread+, have it moved to a different location for free.
“Peloton is working on a rear guard that would address the hazard at the back of the treadmill, but no repair has been approved to date,” the CPSC and Peloton said in a joint release Tuesday.
Peloton recalled around 125,000 of its Tread+ machines and its 1,050 Tread products. In total, there were 335 incidents reported, with 87 reports of consumer injury.
