Dumbbells About 17,000 Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Dumbbells distributed by Nautilus Inc. of Vancouver, Wash.; sold at sporting goods stores, Nautilus.com and other online retailers May-August 2011.
The black steel dumbbells are sold in pairs and can have a weight capacity of 10 to 90 pounds. The word “BOWFLEX” is written in grey along the top of each handle. A selector dial on each end of the cradle lists weights in red, starting at 10 and increasing in increments of five. The red Bowflex logo is at the center of the dial. They were made in China.
The weight selector dial on the units can fail, causing weight plates to fall when the dumbbell is lifted from its cradle, posing an injury hazard. Nautilus has received 16 reports of the weight selector dial failing, including three reports of injuries to the user’s foot or leg.
