The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of TVs distributed and installed by Pdi Communications in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, medical centers, and nursing homes. The wall-mounted 26-inch and 32-inch LCD sets were sold for about $1,000 and installed between September 2008 and July 2009.
Facilities with the sets are asked to immediately remove the power cord and call Pdi to arrange a free repair. One incident of flames from a set has been reported, which is caused by a defect in the TV’s power supply board.
For more information, including model and serial numbers affected, go to the CPSC website.
