Vizio Flat Screen TVs Under Recall For Stand Failure

A popular electronics company is recalling several of its television sets to protect buyers from possibly getting injured.

Vizio is recalling some of its E-Series 39 inch and 42 inch Full-Array LED flat panel television sets due to stand assembly failure. The stand of those sets can give out and cause the box to tip over unexpectedly.

About 245,000 sets are being recalled.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the flat panel televisions are black with “VIZIO” printed in the lower right corner of the television front and the VIZIO logo in the center of the back.

Vizio has received 51 reports of the televisions flipping over. Almost a quarter-million of the sets have been sold.

If you have one of the TVs, you should detach the stand immediately and contact Vizio at (855) 472-7450 for a free replacement.
