About 8,900 homes could have a surprising fire danger inside their living room, bedroom, or wherever they watch their flat screen TV.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is working with eight major retailers to recall the Coby 32 inch flat screen TV.
The commission has received reports of six incidents involving the TVs overheating, smoking or catching fire. One incident involved a television catching on fire and scorching a wall. Another involved a fire that was limited to the television. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves black Coby 32-inch flat screen televisions with model number TFTV3229 and serial numbers beginning with LG and that have M07 or M10 in the 9th, 10th and 11th position of the serial number. The model and serial numbers are printed on a label on the back of the televisions and Coby is printed on the front.
Consumers should immediately turn off and unplug the recalled televisions and contact the participating retailer where their television was purchased for instructions on the remedy available from that retailer, which could be a refund, store credit, gift card or replacement TV.
Coby USA is out of business. So, these eight major retailers are involved in the recall effort.
