Durabrand DVD Players Recalled By Wal-Mart Due To Fire Hazard

Comments Off

More than 4.5 million Durabrand DVD Players are being recalled by Wal-mart because the circuit board can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to users.

Wal-Mart initially recalled the silver models in August. But the newest recall has been expanded to include pink and purple versions of the Durabrand DVD players.

To this date the company has received 14 reports of the DVD players overheating, seven of which have resulted in fires and caused property damages. There have been no reports of injury.

The recall involves a single DVD player with remote control, sold in three colors – silver, pink and purple. The following UPC codes and model numbers are included:

Silver: UPC 1799901002, Model No. 1002

Pink: UPC 1799934100, Model No. 1002 PINK

Purple: UPC 1799932100, Model No. 1002 PUR

The DVD players were sold nationwide at Wal-Mart stores from January 2006 through July 2009 for $29.00.

Consumers should stop using the product and return it to the nearest Wal-Mart for a full refund.
