CPSC Recall: Rogue Fitness Recalled Barbell Brackets for Injury Risks

Columbus, OH — About 5,500 Rogue Fitness Barbell Brackets were voluntarily recalled by Coulter Ventures LLC, dba Rogue Fitness and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for injury hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on April 12, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the weld between the bracket and the pin that holds the barbell bracket in place on a weightlifting rack can break, which can cause the weight to fall. This poses an injury hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves Rogue Fitness J-Cup brackets used to hold barbells on weightlifting racks. The black metal brackets are used with the Rogue Fitness SPX Squat Press Stand, R-3 Racks, R-4 Racks and Infinity Rigs,” reported the CPSC press release.

Consumers are advised to contact Coulter to receive free replacement brackets.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Coulter toll-free at (888) 454-6925 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, visit their website at www.roguefitness.com or email the firm at [email protected]
