- A warning if you use Peloton's Tread+ treadmill. The Consumer Product Safety Commission wants customers with small children and pets to stop using it immediately. The commission says there have been nearly 40 dangerous accidents with the treadmill. There have been reports of children becoming entrapped, pinned, and pulled under. One child in Virginia even died. But Peloton says there's no reason to stop using the machine so long as all safety instructions are followed. Peloton warns, though, Tread+ should be kept away from children under 16 years old and pets at all time.
