PhotoOctane Fitness of Brooklyn Park, Minn., is recalling about 570 Octane Fitness XT- One elliptical cross trainers.

The incline lead screw can shear off, causing the foot pedals to drop unexpectedly, resulting in a fall hazard to the user.

The firm has received seven reports of the foot pedal dropping unexpectedly, including one report of a scrape to the knee or leg area.

This recall involves the Octane Fitness XT- One elliptical cross trainer. “Octane Fitness” is printed on the rear of the keypad and the side of the cross trainer.

These standing elliptical cross trainers measure 33 inches by 99 inches and were sold in various shades of gray, green and orange.

The machines have steel tubing with plastic shrouds and a 10 inch glass capacitive touch screen or a large LED display with integrated capacitive buttons.

Only cross trainers with model numbers XT5700 are included in the recall. The model name XTOne is printed on the incline support column.

The cross trainers, manufactured in Taiwan, were sold at specialty fitness stores, distributors and direct sales to commercial clubs and gyms nationwide from August 2015, through November 2017, for between about $8,000 and $10,500.

Gym and fitness center operators should immediately stop using these recalled cross trainers and contact Octane Fitness LLC for repair instructions. The firm is contacting all known purchasers of the recalled cross trainers directly.
