Haier America Recalling 42-inch LED TVs Due to Risk of Injury
Hair America has announced a recall of 5,000 Haier 42-inch LED TVs. The TV stand's neck support can break and cause the TV to tip over, posing a risk of injury to consumers.
Hair America and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have received 184 reports of the TV stand's neck cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported thus far.
This recall involves Haier 42-inch LED TVs with model number LE42B1380. 'Haier' is printed on the front of the TV and the model number is printed on a label on the back of the unit.
The recalled Hair TVs were sold at Fry's Electronics and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and other online retailers from September 2011 through March 2012.
Consumers should immediately stop using and detach the TV from the stand and keep both the TV and the base in a safe location. Consumers should contact Haier America to request a free replacement stand neck to be used with the original base. Consumers with a wall-mounted TV may continue to use it but should request a free replacement stand neck in case the TV is used with the stand in the future.
