Hoist Exercise Bench Defects

Hoist Fitness Systems, Inc. has issued a recall of approximately 48,000 Hoist Exercise Benches, stating the bench's front frame assembly can fail to lock into place. Users who then grab the bench to position themselves may get their fingers trapped between the front and back frame assemblies, which may result in cuts, lacerations and even amputations.
