Federal regulators released a terrifying video of a child being dragged under a Tread + Platoon – as it warned consumers with children and pets to immediately stop using the exercise device.

Video shared by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission on Saturday showed a young boy playing near a Tread + Platoon when the ball he is using gets trapped under the equipment and is pulled underneath.

The safety commission said on Saturday it was aware of 39 incidents with the treadmill, including a deceased child.

“In light of several reports of children being trapped, pinned and pulled under the rear roller of the product, the CPSC urges consumers with children at home to immediately stop using the product.”

Peloton customers who wish to continue using machines should keep them in a locked room away from children and pets, unplug them when not in use and keep all other objects away from them. , the agency said.

Meanwhile, Peloton said in a statement that the safety commission’s warning was “inaccurate and misleading.”

“Peloton is disappointed that despite its offers of collaboration, and despite the fact that the Tread + complies with all applicable safety standards, the CPSC did not want to engage in meaningful discussions with Peloton prior to publish its inaccurate and misleading press release, ”the statement read. .
