42-inch LED HDTV being recalled - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of around 5,000 Haier 42-inch LED HDTV sets because the stand's neck could break causing it to fall.

Haier America Trading L.L.C. and CPSC have received 184 reports of the HDTV neck of the stand cracking or breaking. If the neck support breaks, the TV set could fall over and become a danger to the consumer. There were no reports of injuries.

The TV sets were sold at Fry’s Electronics and other retailers nationwide. They were also sold at Amazon.com and other retailers online. The sets sold for around $450 between September 2011 and March 2012.

The recalled LED HDTV sets have the model number LE42B1380. The units are the 42-inch model and have the word “Haier” printed on the front of the set. The model number is found on the back of the unit on a label.

Consumers who have the recalled TV sets should take the display off the stand. The consumer should safely store the TV display and the base in a safe location so it does not break. Then consumers can contact Haier America to get a free replacement stand neck. This replacement part works with the original base, so consumers should take care of the base.

Haier America can be contacted toll-free at (877) 813-8516 between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Saturday and between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Sundays. The company’s website is at www.haieramerica.com/recall.
