Recall Round-Up: May 18, 2021

This edition of Recall Round-Up features major product recalls from Peloton, Kidde, Signature Hardware and homegoods retailer TJ Maxx.

 

  • Peloton+ Treadmill

    This month Peloton issued a recall of more than 125,000 Peloton+ Treadmill TR01 models due to a serious safety hazard. The manufacturer received 72 injury reports from adults, children, pets, and objects after being pulled under the rear of the treadmill. 29 of these reports were of second and third degree abrasions and broken bones in children and in one tragic case, a 6 year old child died as a result. The CPSC urged Peloton to recall this treadmill model several months ago, but the manufacturer simply issued a warning to its customers to keep children away from the machine. They now say they ‘made a mistake’ and should have listened to the federal agency and recalled the unsafe machine. If you own a Peloton+ model TR01, discontinue use right away and contact Peloton at 866-679-9129 for instructions on how to return your treadmill for a full refund no later than November 6, 2022. If you do not wish to return the unit, Peloton will also make arrangements to help you move it to a location in your home that is not accessible to children or pets. They are also issuing a software update that will automatically lock the treadmill after use.

 

 

  • TJ Maxx Infant Sleep Bags

    TJ Maxx issued a recall of approximately 3,600 infant sleep bags this month due to a potential suffocation hazard. According to the retailer, the top opening for the 0-6 month infant sleep bag is large enough for an infant’s head to slip into and potentially suffocate. The recall includes the following brands: Dylan & Abby, First Wish and First Wish Organic, Harry & Me, Little Red Caboose, Piper & Posie, Sam & Jo and Sam & Jo Organic, Shabby Chic, and Willow Blossom. These infant sleep bags were sold in TJ Maxx and Marshalls stores and online between April 2018 and February 2021 for about $20. Although no injuries have been reported, consumers are asked to discontinue use of the sleep bags and contact TJ Maxx at 833-888-0776 to receive a refund.

 

  • TJ Maxx Outdoor Wooden Folding Chair

    Another recall issued this month by TJ Maxx was for an outdoor wooden folding chair sold at TJ Maxx, HomeGoods and Marshalls. The wooden chair with armrests and a ‘Nautica’ hangtag may break, causing a user to fall and potentially become injured. TJ Maxx received 18 reports of chairs breaking  with 15 resulting in injuries. The recall covers nearly 92,000 chairs sold from June 2018 thru January 2021. Customers should contact TJ Maxx at 888-520-0322 for additional instructions on how to return the chair and receive a refund.
