Bollinger Resistance Band Recall Issued Due to Door Anchor Problems

Over 60,000 resistance exercise bands have been recalled due to a risk that the door anchors could unexpectedly release, causing the band or anchor ball to spring back towards the user and cause an injury. 

The Bollinger resistance bands recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 15, following a consumer complaint that the black plastic ball anchor released during use, striking and injuring the user.

The resistance bands may cause injury due to the ball anchor breaking off of the nylon strap that is wedged between a door and door frame. If this happens, the band could snap back and strike the user, the CPSC warns.

The recall includes Bollinger Fitness Classic and SoftTouch resistance bands with model numbers 5771, 5772, 5773, 5774, and 5775. The bands measure four feet long and are made of a gray, red, black or blue rubber and have black foam handles. The bands were sold with a five-inch long strap of nylon webbing that is looped onto the band and a plastic ball encased to use as a door anchor. The handles have the Bollinger Fitness logo printed on them and the model numbers can be located on the products’ packaging.

The bands were manufactured in China and Taiwan under Bollinger Fitness, a division of Alliance Sports Group L.P, of Grand Prarie, Texas. They were sold at Fred Meyers, Marshalls, Modell’s Sporting Goods, T.J. Maxx,  and other various retailers nationwide and online from July 2012 through March 2014 for between $9 and $14.

An estimated 60,000 bands were sold in the United States and another 3,000 in Canada.

The CPSC recommends that customers stop using the recalled resistance bands immediately and contact Bollinger at 800-255-6061, or visit them online at www.bollingerfitness.com to receive information on how to get a free replacement door attachment with free shipping.
