An elliptical exercise trainer sold under the model name Schwinn 460 and distributed by Nautilus Inc. of Vancouver, Wash., has been recalled.
About 10,000 of the devices, which were made in China, were sold at Nautilus.com, Amazon.com, Dick’s Sporting Goods, AAFES, specialty fitness retailers and specialty sporting goods stores nationwide between July 2008 and May 2011.
The foot plates can detach from the machine during use, posing a fall hazard.
Nautilus has received nine reports of foot plates detaching or breaking during use. One incident resulted in a person hitting his knee.
