LG Recalls Over 50,000 Smart TVs Due To Tipping Hazard

LG has recalled four models of 86-inch smart television because the support legs are proving too weak to hold it upright.

The recall involves LG Electronics 86-inch smart TV models with numbers: 86UQ8000AUB, 86UQ7070ZUD, 86UQ7590PUD and 86NANO75UQA.

LG has received 22 “reports of instability”, and 12 reports of tip-overs. No injuries have been reported.

Given the televisions weight over 45kg, the recall alert from the Consumer Product Safety Commission warns the product can cause ā€œentrapment hazards that can result in injuries or death to children and others.”

Luckily for Australians, the affected TVs were sold in the US, Mexico, and Canada, with 52,000 sold — mostly in US department stores such as Walmart, Best Buy, and Costco, as well as on Amazon.com — between March and September 2022.

It is unknown whether any of the affected TVs are being sold in Australia. Product Safety Australia has not announced a recall. We have contacted LG Australia to confirm.

It’s only the legs that are impacted, so customers who have wall-mounted their 86-inch screens are fine to keep watching.
