Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves black Coby 32-inch Flat Screen Televisions with model number TFTV3229 and serial numbers beginning with LG and that have M07 or M10 in the 9th, 10th and 11th position of the serial number. The model and serial numbers are printed on a label on the back of the Televisions and the word “Coby” is printed on the front. Coby USA is out of business.

According to the CPSC, an electronic component can fail, catch fire and ignite nearby items, posing fire and burn hazards. CPSC has received reports of six incidents involving the televisions overheating, smoking or catching fire. One incident involved a television catching on fire and scorching a wall. Another involved a fire that was limited to the television. No injuries have been reported.

Because Coby USA is out of business, eight retailers have stepped up to voluntarily recall the TV Sets:
