Best Buy Co. Inc. of Richfield, Minn., has recalled about 13,300 Insignia 26-inch flat-panel LCD televisions because the power supply can fail, posing a fire and burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.
Best Buy has received two reports of fires that damaged the television and wall. One consumer reported minor burns to the hands.
The recall involves sets with the model number IS-LCDTV26 printed on the back and the word INSIGNIA on the bottom front. No other Insignia model televisions are involved in this recall.
Approximately 1,500 televisions were sold exclusively at Best Buy and Future Shop retail stores across Canada and through internet sales between June 2005 to April 2007.
In the United States, Best Buy stores, www.bestbuy.com and www.bestbuyforbusiness.com sold the TVs from August 2005 through June 2006 for about $800 US.
Consumers should stop using the televisions and contact the Best Buy hotline to receive a gift card for the value of a replacement.
Consumers can call Best Buy at 1-800-233-0462 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. CT daily.
