LG recalls more than 52,000 4K TVs due to Tipping Hazard according to reports. The leg stands included do not keep the TV as stable as it should be which could however result in tip-overs.
LG Recalls More Than 52,000 4K TVs According To Reports
LG has now issued a recall for many of its free-standing 4K 86-inch smart TVs due to the fact that the included leg stands do not keep them stable as they should be and that the 100-pound displays could well tip over and in the process causing harm to children and others.
The company got 22 reports of TVs noticeably being unstable, with 12 of those reported resulting in tip-overs. Fortunately, none of them led to injuries, but the danger, however, is real enough for the company to issue a large recall, which impact about 52,000 TVs already sold at big-box stores such as Best Buy, Costco, Walmart, and online in the united states along with many thousand already sold in Mexico and Canada.
LG TV Models Included In the Recall
The recalled units in question include some 86-inch smart TVs with model numbers 86UQ8000AUB, 86UQ7070ZUD, 86UQ7590PUD, and 86NANO75UQA. Faulty units however have serial numbers all starting with 202RM, 203RM, 204RM, 205RM, 206RM, 207RM, or 208RM. Owners on the other hand can locate both the model number and serial number on the bottom right of the back of their TV, or they can simply bring up the serial number on the LG remote that comes with the TV.
Mounted TVs Are Excluded From the Recall
The recall notice that was issued only applies to TVs making use of the included leg stands. TVs that are mounted on walls should however be considered exempt from this recall in question.
