DICK’S Sporting Goods is recalling about 10,000 Ethos Pull-Up Assists.
The plastic clip on the nylon web band that is attached to the resistance band with a carabiner can break, posing a laceration hazard.
The firm has received seven reports of equipment breaking, resulting in six lacerations. One incident required the consumer to receive stitches, another required the consumer to receive staples.
This recall involves the Ethos Pull-Up Assist equipment used for assistance during pull ups.
The equipment consists of three red resistance bands which are connected with a nylon web band with a plastic clip and metal carabiner that are placed under the users’ feet while performing a pull up.
The word ETHOS appears in red on the black nylon web connector, and the style number ETHA200 and UPC number 889751549392 appear on the packaging.
The pull-up assists, manufactured in China, were sold at DICK’S Sporting Goods stores nationwide and online at DicksSportingGoods.com from March 2017 through February 2019 for around $35.
