The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning Saturday about Peloton's Tread+ treadmill, warning people with kids and pets to stop using the treadmill after one child died and nearly 40 others reported injuries.

New York-based Peloton Interactive Inc. said in a news release that the warning was "inaccurate and misleading." It said there's no reason to stop using the treadmill as long as children and pets are kept away from it at all times.

The regulator said if the company doesn’t agree to a voluntary recall for the treadmill from the markets, they may have to take Peloton to court, which may take years to resolve. Jennifer Johnson has more.
