About 29,700 units of resistance stretch tubing from EB Brands is being recalled. The handle on the tubing, also called bands, can break or detach while in use, causing the tubing or handle to strike the user and posing an injury hazard. One report of an incident involved a bone injury.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves Everlast Resistance Stretch Tubing, Everlast Pilates Stretch Tubing, Sportline Resistance Stretch Tubing and Pineapple Pilates Stretch Tubing, used for exercise and stretching.
The tubing comes in yellow, blue or black with black handles. The words “2404”, “2001 EB Sport Group” and “Made in China” are molded on the handles. A list of affected lot numbers is available on the firm's website.
The product was sold at sporting goods retailers from March 2010 through December 2010 for between $13 and $25.
