Peloton CEO confirms 130% sales increase last quarter
Peloton CEO John Foley reflects on the path to creating the popular at-home fitness brand.
A woman is suing Peloton, claiming its treadmill is dangerous for children and pets, after a consumer watchdog agency urged Americans to stop using its $4,295 Tread+ following 39 reports of injuries and one child death.
Shannon Albright of Rocklin, Calif., claims in a class-action lawsuit filed with the Northern District of California that Peloton’s warnings did not convey the potential safety hazards of its treadmill machine, though it was advertised as family-friendly with images of parents with children in front of the product, according to court documents obtained by FOX Business.
Albright cited previous incidents that have occurred in which children have been trapped and injured by the machine. The suit, first reported by TMZ, also mentions the death of one child and claims the Tread+ potentially could cause injuries such as broken bones, brain injury and death, as noted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). She's suing for over $5 million in damages.
