CPSC, DCD Incorporated Announce Recall of Exercisers

PRODUCT: Exercise equipment - DCD Incorporated of Malibu, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 9,500 Ab Swing exercise units. The Ab Swing is a manual exercise unit, primarily intended for abdominal exercise. It is gray steel, with red seat and handlebars with black grips. The Ab Swing weighs approximately 18 pounds, and sits about 2 feet off the ground. The word "abswing" is printed on the front of the seat and the phrase "Made in Malaysia" is printed on a tag on the back of the seat. Units that contain the phrase "Made in China" are not included in this recall. Home Shopping Network (HSN) sold the exercise units in September 2002 for about $89.

PROBLEM: Some of the exercise units contain two faulty handlebar welds under the seat that could fail allowing consumers to fall to the ground.

INCIDENTS/INJURIES: DCD Incorporated is aware of 139 complaints related to the potential weld failure, of which 11 involve injuries to the wrists, back and head when consumers fell from the seat.

WHAT TO DO: Consumers should stop using the Ab Swing immediately. DCD is directly contacting all owners instructing them to return the product's handlebars for a free replacement. For more information, contact DCD Incorporated at (866) 473-0164, Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm PT.
