- Lean into that sprint, Peloton!

JOHANNA GREENAWAY: The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a warning about a Peloton treadmill. Safety regulators say there have been 39 incidents where children and at least one pet have been pulled and trapped under the tread plus treadmill, leading to fractures, scrapes, and the death of one child. Peloton Interactive Incorporated says 23 of those incidents involved children, 15 included objects like medicine balls, and one included a pet. However, Peloton says the warning from the Safety Commission was inaccurate and misleading. The company said there's no reason to stop using the treadmill as long as children and pets are kept away from it at all times, it's turned off when not in use, and a safety key is removed.
