Elliptical Machines Recalled Due to Fall Hazard

December 7, 2011 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that Nautilus Inc. is recalling approximately 10,000 elliptical exercise equipment units that could pose a fall hazard.  In the event of a fall, consumers could suffer serious injuries including knee, leg or head injuries.

Nautilus is recalling the Schwinn 460 model of elliptical trainers after it received nine reports of the foot plates detaching or breaking during use.

The elliptical machines were sold online and at specialty fitness retailers and sporting goods stores nationwide between July 2008 and May 2011 for about $1,000.  Consumers should immediately stop using these products.
