Ergotron Interactive Wall Mounts has been recalled by Ergotron Inc., of Eagan, Minn. The weld between the “VESA” style mounting plate and the mounting ring can fail, allowing the monitor or TV to fall. This poses a risk of injury to bystanders. This includes about 195,000 in the United States, 60 in Canada and 21,000 in Mexico. The adjustable Ergotron interactive wall mount is designed for flat panel displays and televisions which allows users to reposition their display angles. The wall mounts consist of three parts including a wall mount plate for securing the system to the wall; an extendible arm that allows the user to adjust the position of their television in multiple directions and a monitor plate for securing the arm to the television. Ergotron says it has received three reports of the monitor plate separating from the wall mount system. Consumers reported property damage to components of the wall mount unit. No injuries have been reported, according to the company.
The brackets were sold at AAFES, h.h.Gregg, Sam’s Club, Walmart and independent retailers nationwide specializing in electronic supplies and online at Amazon.com from February 2012 to January 2013 for between $50 and $400. Consumers should immediately remove the TV/monitor from the mount and contact Ergotron for a free repair kit.
