Paramount Fitness Corp. is recalling about 150 leg-curl machines because a consumer's hand can become caught between the cylindrical counter weight and the frame, posing a crushing hazard that can result in lacerations and finger amputation.
Paramount has received three reports of incidents, including a finger amputation and two finger-crushing injuries.
The PL2100 machines were sold nationwide from January 1993 through October 1995 for about $2,400.
Consumers should contact Paramount Fitness to receive a free repair kit, at 800-825-8905 or www.paramountfitness.com.
