The recalled units have gray or black-colored steel frames and five plywood shelves. The recalled units include model numbers CR3618, CR3618-BLK, CR4824 and CR4824-BLK.

Nautilus Bowflex SelectTech Barbell Recall
Nautilus is recalling about 3,700 units of its Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbell with Curl Bar.
The company says a weight plate can fall from the end of the barbell, posing an impact injury hazard.
The units were sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Play It Again Sports and online at Bowflex and Amazon from June 2020 through July 2020 for about $550.

The barbells are black with a red Bowflex logo on the weight selector dial. The storage tray is marked with the name “Bowflex” and the Bowflex logo in the center.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled barbells and contact Nautilus to receive a free kit with replacement straight and curl bars. Nautilus will ship a kit to customers who purchased the barbells directly from Nautilus.
