Recalls And Warnings

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Nautilus, Inc., is recalling roughly 3,700 barbell sets because a weight plate can fall off from the end, posing a risk of injury or property damage.

The recall involves the Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbell with Curl Bar, which were sold in sporting goods stores and online from June through July 2020, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The CPSC says the manufacturer has received one report of the weight plate falling off which caused damage, however, no injuries have been reported to date.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled barbells and contact Nautilus at 800-243-7091 to receive a free kit with replacement straight and curl bars.

More than two million shelving units were also recalled this week because they can fail to support the 800-pound weight load that’s listed on the packaging.


Additionally, a single lot of Manukaguard Manuka Honey Allercleanse nasal spray is being recalled because it may be contaminated with yeast.
