UNCS recalls isometric exercise devices

United National Closeout Stores is recalling about 1,500 Ontel ISO7X isometric exercise devices because they pose an injury risk.

The handle grips on each end can break during use and cause parts to be forcefully ejected from the shaft.

There have been 10 reports of the handles breaking and the ejection of the internal spring coil and rod, including five reports of impact injuries that resulted in punctures and lacerations as part of the original recall in April 2014. No new incidents have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled exercise devices and contact the company to receive instructions on how to obtain a full refund.

United National can be reached 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday by calling collect at 954-524-3325, and click "Get in Touch" for more information or email
