Impex Fitness of Pomona, Calif., is recalling about 72,700 Olympic Dumbbell handles.

The locking collars on the handles can slip, dropping weights when held perpendicular to the floor and posing an impact injury hazard.

The firm has received four reports of locking collars that slipped. No injuries are reported.

This recall involves the OBB-20 Olympic Dumbbell handles that can be used with any Olympic-size weight plates in any configuration that allow users to perform various dumbbell exercises.

The Olympic Dumbbell handles are chrome in color and finish, and each dumbbell handle comes with two locking collars in black.

The dumbbell handles, manufactured in China, were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide and online at https://www.dickssportinggoods.com from July 2015, through July 2021, for about $50.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dumbbell handles and contact Impex Fitness to receive a free replacement set of new locking collars.

The replacement collars will be mailed out to consumers free of charge. Consumers should discard the old collar.

Consumers may contact Impex Fitness at (800) 999-8899 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday through Friday, or online at https://www.impex-fitness.com/fitness-gear-olympic-dumbbell-handle-recall for more information.
