LG Electronics (LGE) issued a recall of four models of its 86-inch 4K TVs on Thursday due to tip-over concerns. The recall affects 52,000 TVs sold between March and September 2022 with the model numbers 86NANO75UQA, 86UQ7070ZUD, 86UQ7590PUD, and 86NANO75UQA.
The recall notice from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says the TVs "can become unstable while on the assembled stand, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in injuries or death to children and others." The recall applies to TVs sold by Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Walmart, and other brick-and-mortar stores for $1,100 to $1,900.
The recall notice says owners of the affected models should detach the TV from its stand and place it somewhere safe and away from kids. It also advises customers to contact LGE "for instructions on how to inspect the unit and to obtain replacement screws and stand parts, including help from a technician for a free repair."
