According to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, consumers should immediately stop using Implus Footcare’s Perfect Resistance Bands due to injury hazard. The bands can detach from the mesh cloth loops posing an injury hazard to the user and those in the vicinity. So far, 12 non-serious incidents have been reported including injuries to the back, hand and eye.
The Perfect Bands are rubber tubes connected through a hole and secured by grommets to cloth sewn into loops. The bands can be used alone or in conjunction with optional handles, which are sold separately. The bands are approximately 40 inches long. "Perfect Fitness" is printed on a tag on the cloth loop. UPC codes can be found on the package. The recalled bands are:
