RECALL ALERT: Some VIZIO Televisions Recalled Due To Faulty Stands

manaemedia/ThinkStock

VIZIO has recalled specific models of television sets due to a fault that can cause them to tip over and break.

Here is the information on the recall from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

VIZIO E-Series 39-inch and 42-inch televisions  - The stand assembly can fail and cause the television to tip over unexpectedly, posing a risk of impact injury to the consumer.  About 245,000 units are impacted.  VIZIO has received 51 reports of the recalled televisions tipping over. No injuries have been reported.

This only affects certain serial numbers, and you can check to see if your television is part of the recall by entering your serial number on VIZIO’s website.

People using the stand assembly should immediately detach the stand, place the television in a safe location and contact VIZIO for a replacement stand assembly. Consumers with wall-mounted televisions should request the replacement stand assembly in case they decide to use the stand in the future.

If you have one of these televisions, you can call VIZIO toll-free at (855) 472-7450 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Consumers can also visit their website www.vizio.com and click on “Safety Notice” for more information (in searching their website, I found it hard to find, so you can also get to the notice directly by clicking here.)
