About 5,000 Haier® 42-inch LED television sets have been recalled by Haier America Trading L.L.C., of New York, N.Y. The TV stand’s neck support can break and cause the TV to tip over, posing a risk of injury to the consumer. Haier America and CPSC have received 184 reports of the TV stand’s neck cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported. 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 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 for about $450. 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. For more information, contact Haier America 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.
