Nautilus of Vancouver, Wash., is recalling about 3,700 Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbells with Curl Bar.

A weight plate can 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. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbell with Curl Bar consisting 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 are black with a red Bowflex logo on the weight selector dial. The storage tray is marked with the name “Bowflex” and the Bowflex logo in the center.

The barbells, manufactured in China, were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Play It Again Sports and online at www.Bowflex.com and www.Amazon.com in June and July 2020 for about $550.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled barbells and 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.
