Risk of Injury Prompts Recall of Cybex Leg Press Machines
Cybex International is recalling approximately 430 leg press machines. The weight platform locking mechanism can fail and the backrest can disengage during normal use, posing a risk of injury to the consumer.
This recall involves Cybex model 16110 plate-loaded leg presses used mostly in commercial gyms. The leg presses have a metal frame, an adjustable backrest and can be ordered in a variety of colors. The name 'Cybex' is located on the outer left side of the upper frame.
The Serial Number label can be found on the lower main frame near the floor and ranges from D072216110 through G091416110.
The recalled leg presses were sold by authorized Cybex dealers and distributers nationwide from July 2009 to September 2012.
Consumers and commercial locations should immediately stop using these leg presses until they order and install a free repair kit. Cybex International is contacting its customers directly.
