CPSC and Stamina Products Inc. Announce Recall of Exercise Machines

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Stamina Products Inc. of Springfield, Mo., is announcing a voluntary recall to refund or replace approximately 21,500 exercising machines (model PR-6050). The machine's welds may develop cracks or breaks. Consumers could be injured if the welds break and the seat drops unexpectedly.

Stamina has received notice of 43 reports of the welds allegedly cracking or separating, resulting in injuries such as sprains and bruises.

The black metal exercise machine resembles a bicycle without wheels. "Stamina" is printed in red on the back, lower frame of the machine. To operate the machine, consumers pull the handlebars, which rocks the seat forward. The machine adjusts under the seat to increase resistance and provide a more intense workout.

Stamina Exercise Machine

QVC Network, Damark International Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and Value Vision sold the PR-6050 from November 1995 through February 1996 for about $99.

Consumers who own PR-6050s should immediately contact Stamina to arrange for a refund or free replacement. In order to receive a refund or free replacement, consumers must return the PR-6050 to Stamina at Stamina's cost. For more information, consumers should call Stamina at (800) 375-7520 or write to Stamina at P.O. Box 1071, Springfield, MO 65801-1071.
