At the beginning of May, Peloton recalled the Peloton Tread & Tread+. Peloton stated at the time they would be working with the CPSC to get approval for a fix. For the newer Tread, the issue was that the screen could become loose and fall out.
Today, Peloton is sharing that they have received approval from the CPSC for a fix for the newer Tread. While they don’t detail what the fix is, they originally stated they hoped to be able to fix it with some better/stronger screws for the screen.
Their FAQ pages are now updated and state:

The page also states that the repair will be a”Peloton-trained technician will be coming to your home to install a CPSC-approved repair to your Tread to replace the touchscreen. ”
At this moment, Peloton has not shared when the Tread will go back on sale – right now they appear to be focused on repairs to existing Tread owners.
The Tread+ is still under recall and does not have an approved fix yet. This fix will likely require a manufacturing change.
