CPSC: Nautilus Recalls Schwinn Elliptical Exercise Equipment for Fall Hazards

Vancouver, WA — Nautilus Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 10,000 Elliptical Exercise Trainers for fall hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on December 6, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the foot plates can detach from the machine during use, which poses a fall hazard to consumers.

The CPSC reported, “Elliptical exercise trainer equipment sold under the model name Schwinn 460. The machine is 73 inches tall and 54 inches long. It is made of gray anodized aluminum with two moving and two fixed handlebars all with black rubberized padding. The fixed handlebars have heart rate sensors on both sides. The machine has a touch-screen console, an adjustable fan and an orange-colored, oversized water bottle holder. A medallion with the Schwinn logo is on the bottom right side of the base of the machine.”

Consumers are advised to contact Nautilus for a free repair kit, including an extended warranty.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Nautilus toll-free at 800-259-9019 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday, or visit www.schwinn.com.
