Vizio is recalling two sizes of its flat panel televisions because of a risk the sets may tip over and cause injury.
The stand assembly can fail on Vizio E-series 39-inch and 42-inch television sets, causing the television to tip over unexpectedly, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. That failure could pose a risk of impact injury to the consumer.
Vizio says it received 51 reports of tip-overs, but says no injuries have been reported, CPSC says.
Anyone who has purchased that model and size of Vizio set should call the company toll-free at (855) 472-7450 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. eastern time Monday through Friday or between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on the weekend for more information. Consumers can also visit the company's website at www.vizio.com and click on "Safety Notice" for more information.
