Exercise devices recalled over safety risk

WASHINGTON (AP) — Ontel Products Corp. is recalling 170,000 Isometric exercise devices known as the ISO7X due to the risk that the handle grips will break and send parts flying.

Consumers were advised to stop using the product and contact the company for a refund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that the firm has received 10 reports of the handles breaking, causing the ejection of the internal spring coil and rod. That has led to at least five reported injuries, which included punctures and lacerations.

The recalled products were sold for about $30 from 2009 through 2011 in sporting good and other retail stores, as well as through television and online sales.

The ISO7X is about 3 feet long and has hard plastic black handle grips on each end with two black nylon straps that extend down opposite sides of the center metal shaft.
