Peloton later acknowledged it was wrong to initially reject the recall request.
“I want to be clear, Peloton made a mistake in our initial response to the CPSC’s request,” Peloton CEO John Foley said at the time. “We should have engaged more productively with them from the outset. For that, I apologize.”
The DOJ, DHS, SEC and Peloton itself did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the investigations and subpoenas on Saturday afternoon.
Peloton dropped the Tread and Tread+ products from its website following the recalls. The site now lists a new, redesigned Tread model that, according to the website, was “thoughtfully designed with safety in mind.” The new machines will be available Monday.
