Thousands of flat screen television wall mounts are being recalled tonight because they may not hold your TV.
Milestone AV Technologies is recalling 131,000 Sanus Vision and Simplicity mounts. The Sanus Vision Mount model LF228-B1 was sold through independent television mount dealers nationwide from June 2009 through July 2010 for about $450. The Simplicity model SLF2 was sold through Costco from June 2009 through July 2010 for about $200.
The model numbers can be found on the UL sticker on the wall plate.
According to the company the elbow joint components on the wall mount’s arm do not fit together properly which may caused the attached television to tilt and possibly fall. No injuries have been reported.
If you have one of these you should immediately inspect the wall mount to determine if the elbow joint fits properly and contact Milestone for a free replacement wall mount arm. You can find instructions for how to conduct a visual inspection here.
