The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it believes the Peloton Tread+ poses serious risks to children and is urging consumers with children to stop using it.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a warning for owners of the popular Peloton Tread+ exercise machine after "multiple incidents of small children and a pet being injured beneath the machines."

The warning comes weeks after Peloton CEO John Foley said a child died in an accident related to the machine. "While we are aware of only a small handful of incidents involving the Tread+ where children have been hurt, each one is devastating to all of us at Peloton, and our hearts go out to the families involved," he said in a statement.
