ABC40 Alert: Vizio Recalls 245,000 TV’s
According to details posted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 39- and 42-inch models sold since late last year have a stand that can fail and lead to the TV tipping over. Of the 51 tipovers reported among the recalled sets, Vizio said there were no injuries as a result.
If you own one of the 245,000 or so TV’s being recalled, the recommendation is to detach the stand immediately and request a replacement, even if your stand is wall-mounted.
Vizio is notifying owners, who can check on their website for their set’s serial number to see if it’s affected by the recall.
