We highly doubt you have one of these in your home seeing as though they are used more in commercial fitness facilities, which include hotels, health clubs, rehabilitation centers, apartment complexes and schools.

Owners are asked to stop using these machines immediately, especially as Johnson Health Tech has learned that two people have been injured as a result. One man got hit on the head when the handle came away, while another fell after the handle became detached.

Machines affected were sold from July 2013 to October 2014. For more details we ask that you head over to the CPSC website.
