WASHINGTON, DC--In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Harrison-Hoge Industries Inc., of New York, NY announces a recall of the New Gym "Stomach Eliminator" exercisers sold from 1985 to December 1989. In the majority of 62 incidents reported to the firm and CPSC, a spring, clip or footpedal of the exerciser broke during use and struck the user, which resulted in serious facial or body injury. Some 700,000 exercisers were sold nationwide through mail order and retail stores for approximately $10 to $20 each.
