What’s the Problem?
This recall affects about 3,700 Bowflex SelectTech™ 2080 Barbells with Curl Bar, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) .
“Nautilus has received one report of a weight plate falling off the end of a barbell, causing property damage. No injuries have been reported,” CPSC said.
The recalled equipment consists of 2 metal bars, 1 straight and 1 curled. The barbells are black with a red “Bowflex” logo on the weight selector dial. The storage tray is marked with the word “Bowflex” and its logo in the center.
The barbell sets were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Play It Again Sports and online between June 2020 and July 2020 for about $550.
If you purchased a Bowflex barbell that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Nautilus for information about how to obtain a free kit with replacement straight and curl bars. The company will ship a kit to consumers who purchased the barbells directly from Nautilus.
This recall began on February 10, 2021.

Nautilus Agrees to Pay $950,000 for Failing to Report Bowflex Defects, Injuries
The CPSC announced in April 2005 that Nautilus Inc. agreed to pay a $950,000 civil penalty to settle allegations that it failed to report serious injuries and safety defects with nearly 800,000 Bowflex fitness machines.
From 1995 to 2003, Nautilus manufactured and sold approximately 420,000 Bowflex Power Pro fitness machines with a “Lat Tower” and a backboard bench. CPSC claims that between Dec. 1998 and July 2002, Nautilus was aware of at least 27 incidents and 25 injuries to consumers when the backboard bench broke apart and collapsed unexpectedly during use.
Nautilus allegedly knew but failed to report to the CPSC, that consumers suffered back, disc, and neck injuries and falls resulting in chipped teeth.
