About 234 Olympic Decline free weight bench have been recalled by Cybex International, Inc., of Medway, Mass. The frame of the bench can collapse forward onto the user, posing fall and injury hazards. The Decline model free weight benches are designed for use in professional gyms and come in three model numbers: 16060, 16061 and 16062. The Decline model free weight bench is a traditional Olympic bench which accommodates a 7’ wide Olympic bar, and the back pad declines from the knee to the shoulders at a 15 degree angle. The model numbers can be found on the bottom of the tube near where the feet are placed with serial numbers C1208 through H0913 which stand for the manufacture dates, December 2008 through September 2013. The firm received nine reports of frames fatiguing near the weld point. No injuries were reported.
