Vizio recalls 245,000 TVs

Vizio recalls 245,000 TVs

If you have a Vizio TV, you need to pay attention!

Vizio is recalling thousands of TVs because of a hazardous problem, especially if you have little ones. Apparently, several models of Vizio TVs are at "risk of tip over."

There were over 50 complaints about the faulty TV sets that had a tendency to tip, so Vizio is recalling them to make sure no one is injured or loses a TV.

If you think your Vizio might be one of these tip-prone recalls, check the serial number on the back of your TV and see if it matches the list below.
