About 2,200 Johnny G. Krankcycle by Matrix have been recalled by Johnson Health Tech North America, of Cottage Grove, Wis. The seat can unexpectedly detach from the Krankcycle’s frame during use, posing a fall hazard to users. This recall involves all Johnny G.

Consumers can use the machine in a seated or standing position. The Krankcycles measure about 57 inches tall by 27 inches wide by 42 inches long. They are black and silver-colored. KRANKcycle and Matrix are printed on the machines. Two injuries from falls when the seat detached have been reported, including one report of broken ribs and one report of a back injury requiring surgery.
The krankcycle’s were sold by Johnson Health Tech to consumers, health clubs, military facilities, physical therapists, public parks facilities nationwide and they were also sold on various websites, including www.bike-on.com, from January 2008 through January 2012 for between $2,200 and $2,700.
