Thousands of treadmills are being recalled in Canada after people were injured

Nearly 7,000 folding treadmills are being recalled across Canada after the machines "unexpectedly" changed speeds and injured half a dozen people.

Health Canada issued a recall for Horizon Fitness T101-05 folding treadmills on October 27 after the company received eight reports of the machines switching speeds without warning, including six reports of injuries.

When the treadmills unexpectedly speed up or slow down, it poses "a risk that the consumer will fall," Health Canada said.
