Email to a Friend

July 15, 2014—Bollinger Fitness recalled its Classic and SoftTouch resistance bands, because a plastic ball that’s attached to the resistance band’s door anchor might be released unexpectedly and strike the user. This poses an injury hazard to consumers.

The 4-foot-long resistance bands are made of gray rubber that has black, blue, gray or red accents, black foam handles and a door attachment. A 5-inch-long strap of nylon webbing is looped onto the band that has a plastic ball attached or encased and that serves as a door anchor. The Bollinger Fitness logo is printed on the handles. Model number 5771, 5772, 5773, 5774 or 5775 is printed on the product’s package.

The recalled product was sold at Fred Meyers, Marshalls, Modell’s Sporting Goods, T.J. Maxx and other retail stores nationwide and online from July 2012 through March 2014. Bollinger Fitness received a report of a door-anchor ball that was released unexpectedly, which resulted in an injury to the user. Consumers should stop using the door attachment and contact Bollinger Fitness for instructions on how to receive a free replacement door attachment, which includes free shipping.
