Company recalls 1.2 million dumbbells because weights can fall off

Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) _ A Texas company is recalling about 1.2 million Reebok and NordicTrack dumbbells because the weights can fall off the handles.

Jumpking Inc. of Mesquite, Texas, has received nine reports of weights slipping off handles. Five reports involved injuries, including bruising, a broken nose and a broken toe, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.

Gart Sports, Sears, Target and other retail stores sold the chrome dumbbells nationwide from June 2000 to May 14, 2004, for between $4 and $45. Ranging from 2 to 50 pounds, the recalled dumbbells have the Reebok or NordicTrack trademarks printed on them.

The government advises consumers to check their dumbbells and, if weights are loose, to contact the company to find out how to receive a free repair kit. Jumpking can be reached at 800-322-2211, weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT.
