The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is expanding its Aug. 20 recall of Durabrand DVD Players over a fire hazard.
The recall now includes the pink- and purple-colored versions of the same DVD player.
The DVD player’s circuit board can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
This recall involves a single DVD player with a remote control. The device was sold in three colors — silver, pink and purple and has a U-shaped opening at the top to insert the DVD. The DVD players were sold under the following UPC codes and model numbers:
- Silver: UPC 1799901002, Model No. 1002
- Pink: UPC 1799934100, Model No. 1002 PINK
- Purple: UPC 1799932100, Model No. 100
About 4.2 million of the DVD Players were sold at Wal-Mart stores across the United States from January 2006 through July 2009 for about $29 US.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and return it to the nearest Wal-Mart for a full refund.
