Nautilus Recalls Bowflex Dumbbells Due to Injury Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Bowflex(r) SelectTech(r) 1090 Dumbbells

Units: About 17,000

Distributor: Nautilus Inc. of Vancouver, Wash.

Hazard: The weight selector dial on the units can fail, causing weight plates to fall when the dumbbell is lifted from its cradle, posing an injury hazard.

Incidents/Injuries: Nautilus Inc. has received 16 reports of the weight selector dial failing, including three reports of injuries to the user's foot or leg.

Description: These black steel dumbbells are sold in pairs and can have a weight capacity of 10 to 90 pounds. The word 'BOWFLEX' is written in grey along the top of each handle. A selector dial on each end of the cradle lists weights in red, starting at 10 and increasing in increments of five. The red Bowflex logo is at the center of the dial. This recall involves units with a date-of-manufacture code in the serial number in the range of 1111 through 1136. The date code is the four-digit code following the letters "MAG" in the serial number. The serial number is on a white label on the bottom of the cradle. Lift the dumbbell from the cradle with all weights attached before turning over the base. Dumbbells with a black dot on the inside portion of the weight selector dial are not affected by this recall.

Sold at: Sporting goods stores, Nautilus.com and other online retailers from May 2011 through August 2011 for about $600.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the recalled dumbbells immediately and contact Nautilus for a free repair kit.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Nautilus Inc. toll-free at (800) 416-7271 between 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.bowflex.com
