HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - More than 60,000 resistance bands sold across the United States and Canada have been recalled due to a risk of injury.

Bollinger Fitness issued a recall for its Classic and SoftTouch brand resistance bands with a door attachment, model numbers 5771, 5772, 5773, 5774 and 5775.

The 4 foot long resistance bands are made of gray rubber with gray, red, black or blue accents and have black foam handles and a door attachment. A 5 inch long strap of nylon webbing is looped onto the band with a plastic ball attached or encased that serves as a door anchor. The Bollinger Fitness logo appears on the handles. The model number can be found on the product's packaging.

The black plastic ball attached to the door anchor can unexpectedly release and hit the user. There has been one reported injury associated with this recall.

The bands were sold at retailers including Marshalls and T.J. Maxx as well as online.

Consumers should stop using the product and contact the company for information on how to recieve a free replacement attachment.
