NorCal Company Given $425,000 Civil Penalty for Neglecting to Report Dangerous Fitness Gear

By Kelly Balamuth on August 24, 2011

Perfect Fitness, a Sausalito-based company, has been given a $425,000 civil penalty by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on grounds that it neglected to report product defects that resulted in hazardous exercise equipment.

In 2008, the CPSC claims the company deduced that the equipment in question was faulty based on retesting of the handle design. “The testing was done after the firm received a complaint and, according to the firm’s internal review, an unusual number of product returns,” according to the CPSC press release.
