PhotoDICK’S Sporting Goods, of Coraopolis, Pa., is recalling about 207,500 Fitness Gear resistance tubes.

The resistance tubes can break while in use and strike the user, posing an injury hazard.

The tubes range in resistance from 5 pounds to 30 pounds and were sold individually and in kits of three, four or five resistance tubes. The resistance level is marked on the black strap between the handle and the tube.
