Durabrand DVD player recall expanded

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
2 PUR

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.
