The TVs were sold at Best Buy, Meijer, Target, Walmart, and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Costco.com, Meijer.com, Sams.com, and other Internet retailers from December 2013 through June 2014. The cost was between $370 and $450.
Consumers using the stand assembly should immediately detach the stand, place the TV in a safe location, and contact VIZIO for a replacement stand assembly, the company and commission advise. Consumers with wall-mounted televisions should request the replacement stand assembly because the stand may be needed for future use.
