Isometric Exercise Devices Recalled Due to Injury Hazard
Ontel Products Corporation has announced a recall of about 170,000 ISO7X isometric exercise devices. The handle grips on each end can break during use and cause parts to be forcefully ejected from the shaft, posing a risk of injury from impact to the user or bystander.
This recall only involves isometric exercise devices with black handle grips.
The company has received 10 reports of the handles breaking and the ejection of the internal spring coil and rod, including five reports of impact injuries that resulted in punctures and lacerations.
The recalled exercise devices were sold at sporting good and other retail stores nationwide and online from October 2009 through August 2011.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ISO7X isometric exercise device and contact Ontel Products to receive instructions on how to obtain a full refund.
