TV Wall Mounts Recalled Due to Risk of Injury
Ergotron has issued a recall on their interactive television wall mounts due to a risk of injury. According to the recall, “The weld between the “VESA” style mounting plate and the mounting ring can fail, allowing the monitor or TV to fall. This poses a risk of injury to bystanders.” Nearly 200,000 wall mounts sold across North America have been included in the recall. The company has received three reports of incidents of the monitor plate separating from the wall mount system, but no injuries have been reported.
