WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) - Columbus Machine Works Inc., of Columbus, Ohio and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a voluntary recall of Rogue Fitness Barbell Brackets.

According to the CPSC, about 5,500 of the units were sold from Rogue Fitness's website, www.roguefitness.com, from March 2009 through December 2010 for about $40 and were sold as part of weightlifting racks and stands (the Rogue Fitness SPX Squat Press Stand, R-3 Racks, R-4 Racks and Infinity Rigs) for between $350 and $3,400.

The CPSC said the weld between the bracket and pin holding the barbell bracket in place can break causing weights to fall posing risk of injury. Three reports have come in of breakage including one consumer who suffered a sprained wrist.

The recall instructs consumers to stop using the brackets immediately and contact Coulter Ventures LLC dba Rogue Fitness, of Columbus, Ohio to get free replacement brackets at (888) 454-6925 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or go to the firm's website at www.roguefitness.com. You can also contact the firm at qc@roguefitness.com.
