WASHINGTON (WKOW) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall involving about 17,000 Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Dumbbells.
The consumer agency says the weight selector dial on the units can fail, causing weight plates to fall when the dumbbell is lifted from its cradle. Nautilus, Inc. says it has received 16 reports of the weight selector dial failing, including three reports of consumers injuring their foot or leg.
The recall involves units with a date-of-manufacture code in the serial number in the range of 1111 through 1136. The dumbbells were sold at sporting stores nation-wide and online from May 2011 through August 2011 for about $600.
The safety commission says if you have the recalled dumbbells, you should stop using them immediately and contact Nautilus for a free repair kit.
