Massachusetts-based Cybex International is recalling about 19,000 treadmills because they may accelerate unexpectedly, creating a fall hazard to users, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The company has learned of 24 related incidents including six reports of falls and minor injuries.
The recall affects the 445T, 455T, 530T, 450T, 500T, 515T, and 520T models sold in U.S. stores from January 2001 through September 2008 for between $5,500 and $7,000 US each.
The treadmills were made in the U.S.
Consumers should unplug the treadmills and contact the company for a replacement fuse to repair the problem.
