Nautilus Recalls Barbells Due to Potential Safety Risk

Nautilus of Vancouver, Wash., recalled approximately 3,700 Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbells with Curl Bar due to potential safety risk.

A weight plate can potentially fall from the end of the barbell, posing an impact injury hazard.

The firm has received one report of a weight plate falling off the end of a barbell, causing property damage.

This recall involves the Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbell with Curl Bar which consists of two metal bars, one straight and one curled, which are used one at a time.

The bar is inserted into a base, and the user selects the number of weight plates needed to reach the desired weight by turning an adjustment knob.

The barbells were manufactured in China and were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Play It Again Sports.

The company encourages employers to immediately stop using the recalled barbells and to contact Nautilus to receive a free kit with replacement straight and curl bars.

Nautilus will ship a kit to customers who purchased the barbells directly from Nautilus.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
