Panasonic Television Recalled for Tip-Over Hazards
A Panasonic 55” flat-screen television set has been recalled by Panasonic, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced on January 19th, 2018. Mounting screws that attach the heavy screen to a swiveling tabletop stand may come loose without warning, often with only small adjustments to the screen. If someone bumps into the television or a child attempts to climb it or nearby furniture after the screws come loose, it could tip-over, causing serious injury or death.
Description of the recalled Panasonic 55-inch television:
- Black with Panasonic printed on front
- Model # TH055LRU50
- ~750 units sold in America, mostly to schools
Panasonic is urging consumers to remove the television from the swivel stand and store it in a place well away from children who may still tip it over. 55” flat-screen televisions often weigh around 30 pounds or more, which could cause severe injury if it were to fall on someone or a child. After the television is removed, owners should call Panasonic at 855 – 772 – 8324 during regular business hours to request a complimentary repair kit to correct the issue with the loose screws.
