Vizio recalls televisions because stands can tip over
Vizio has recalled nearly a quarter-million 39- and 42-inch flat panel televisions because they can tip over.
Vizio received more than 50 reports of the recalled televisions tipping over according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries had been reported.
The recalled Vizio televisions were sold between December 2013 and June 2014 at Best Buy, Meijer, Target, Walmart and other retail stores as well as online at sites including Amazon.com, Meijer.com, Sams.com and Costco.com. The recalled models sold for between $370 and $450.
“Consumers using the stand assembly should immediately detach the stand, place the television in a safe location and contact VIZIO for a replacement stand assembly,” the CPSC said. “Consumers with wall-mounted televisions should request the replacement stand assembly in case the stand is needed for future use.”
The recalled models are E-series Full-Array LED televisions. The recalled televisions are black with “VIZIO” printed in the lower-right front corner of the television, and the VIZIO logo on the center of the back of the TV. The serial and model numbers are printed on a label on the back of the television.
The recall includes these Vizio televisions:
