The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Circuit City, announced a voluntary recall of the Verge flat-panel TV tilt-mount brackets.
If upward force is applied to a mounted television, the bracket's lock bar could unfasten. This could cause the television to fall and injure bystanders.
No injuries or incidents have been reported.
The recalled tilt-mount brackets for flat-panel televisions are sold under Verge, Circuit City's private label. The two model numbers involved in this recall are VPSW103M and VPSW103M2. Verge and the model numbers are written on the packaging; there is no writing on the brackets. The brackets were sold individually and through an installation package.
The products were sold at Circuit City stores nationwide from September 2006 through April 2007 for about $180 for Model VPSW103M and $140 for Model VPSW103M2.
Circuit City has mailed free repair kits to those consumers it can contact. Consumers who have not received the free repair kit should contact Circuit City immediately to request it. Consumers can also request a free repair by a professional installer.
