Recall - ISO7X Isometric Exercise Device

Web posted on August 12, 2014

This recall involves ISO7X isometric exercise devices. The device is about 1 metre (3 feet) long. It has hard plastic black handle grips on each end and two black nylon straps that extend down opposite sides of the center metal shaft. This recall only involves isometric exercise devices with black handle grips.

The handle grips on each end can break during use and cause parts to be forcefully ejected from the shaft, posing a risk of injury from impact to the user or bystander.

Ontel Products has received 10 reports (none in Canada) of the handles breaking and the ejection of the internal spring coil and rod, including five reports of impact injuries that resulted in punctures and lacerations.

Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.

The recalled product was sold from January 2011 to June 2014. Approximately 7,000 units were sold in Canada by various retailers.

The affected product was manufactured in China and distributed through Ontel Products Corporation, Fairfield, New Jersey.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ISO7X isometric exercise device and contact Ontel Products to receive instructions on how to obtain a full refund.
