UNITED STATES(WSYR-TV) —  Peloton has released a safety update for its “tread plus” treadmills. Customers can now access a “tread lock” feature that requires a four-digit code before using the treadmill. 

The machine will also lock after 45 seconds of inactivity outside of a class. Earlier this month, Peloton recalled all of its treadmills following a child’s death and dozens of injuries.
