Yonkers, NY—About 29,000 resistance stretch tubes have been voluntarily recalled by EB Brands and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for injury hazards the product poses. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 22, 2011.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the handle on the tubing, also known as bands, can break or detach while in use, which can cause the tubing or handle to strike the user and create an injury hazard.
“This recall involves Everlast Resistance Stretch Tubing, Everlast Pilates Stretch Tubing, Sportline Resistance Stretch Tubing and Pineapple Pilates Stretch Tubing, used for exercise and stretching. The tubing comes in yellow, blue or black with black handles. The words ‘2404’, ‘2001 EB Sport Group’ and ‘Made in China’ are molded on the handles. A list of affected lot numbers is available on the firm’s website,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to contact EB Brands for a free replacement product or a full refund.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact EB Brands at (800) 624-5671 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.ebbrands.com.
