Beware of man-eating treadmill
Peloton a successful exercise equipment company that boom during the pandemic is now recalling their treadmill after a child has died from the equipment. Ignoring the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Peloton insisted that the treadmill was safe and refuse to recall it. That was until the death of a child was reported, in addition, there are 72 reports of adults, children, pets, and objects being pulled underneath the treadmill. And 29 reports of children receiving injuries ranging from second-third degree burns, abrasions, lacerations, and broken bones.
The problem with the treadmill is the height of it. A design problem that Peloton overlooked. Peloton is now recalling the dangerous treadmill that can devour people. Anyone who has the treadmill and wishes to return will get a full refund from Peloton.
So beware and keep vigilant of the man-eating treadmill. Children, small animals, and midgets are the ones in the most danger as the treadmill can drag them underneath and devour them. Adults can’t let their guards down either, injuries can still happen if care is not taken.
