Walmart Resistance Bands Recalled Due to Risk of Breaking, Injury

About 75,600 exercise resistance bands sold exclusively at Walmart have been recalled, due to reports that suggest the handles may be defective and fail, posing a potential injury risk for users or bystandards if the rubber bands separate from the handle. 

A Perfect Resistance Bands recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on January 22, following at least 12 reports of the mesh handles detaching from the rubber bands. As a result of the problems, consumers have suffered injuries to the back, hand, and eyes.

The Walmart exercise bands are designed to provide resistance in 25lb., 30 lb., or 40lb. capacities, creating a powerful recoil if the product breaks.
