Reports of Cracking Stands Leads to JVC Flat-Panel Television Recall
AmTRAN Video is recalling about 27,000 JVC 42-inch flat-panel televisions after more than 15 reports that the neck of the TV stand cracked.
A cracked neck can cause the TV to tip over unexpectedly posing a risk of injury.
Consumers using the stand assembly (neck and base) should immediately detach it, place the television in a safe location and contact AmTRAN Video for a replacement. Consumers with wall-mounted televisions should request the replacement neck in case the stand assembly is needed for future use.
This recall involves JVC 42-inch, Emerald Series Full HD 1080P LED flat-panel televisions, model EM42FTR and serial number beginning with 'T'.
The TV was sold at BJ's Wholesale, Costco Wholesale, Sam's Club, Walmart, and other retail stores nationwide, online at Walmart.com, Costco.com, and other internet retailers from February 2014 through August 2014 for between $370 and $470.
Consumers can contact AmTRAN Video toll-free at (855) 328-6650.
