(AP) — Peloton is recalling its treadmills after denying that they were to blame for the recent death of a child and the injuries of 29 others. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday that Peloton received 72 reports of adults, kids, pets or other items, such as exercise balls, being pulled under the treadmill.

The recall comes after the safety commission warned last month that people with children or pets to immediately stop using Peloton treadmills.

Peloton is best known for its stationary bikes, but it introduced the treadmill about three years ago and now calls it the Tread+. It costs more than $4,200. Those who own the treadmill can get a full refund from Peloton by Nov. 6, 2022.
