Recall Alert: 86” LG TVs due to tipping over
LG is recalling four models of their 86-inch smart TV models because the TV has a tendency to tip over, and could hurt, or possibly kill, children and others.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says there's been 22 reports of instability and 12 reports of tip-overs.
No one has reported they've been hurt.
The affected models (86UQ8000AUB, 86UQ7070ZUD, 86UQ7590PUD, and 86NANO75UQA) were sold at stores nationwide including at Walmart, Best Buy, Costco and on Amazon from March 2022 through September.
If you have these models, experts say detach the TV and place it in a safe location away from children. Contact LG Electronics 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. Consumers who wall-mounted their TVs do not need to stop using their them.
