Peloton, an indoor exercise bike with online streaming classes, recently announced a recall on clip-in pedals found on over 27,000 of their bikes. The recalled pedals are on bikes that were sold between July 2013 and May 2016. Peloton received over 120 reports of pedal breakages and 16 injuries, five of which required medical care. This recall mainly affects members who still have out-of-warranty original pedals on their affected bike. If customers have changed their pedals annually, they are safe from the recall. Although pedals of other generations of Peloton are not directly affected by the recall, Peloton recommends that all customers change their bike pedals annually.
