Studio RTA is recalling about 48,600 TV stands. The stability of the stands does not meet industry standards to prevent TV tip-over, posing a risk of injury or death to consumers.
This recall involves four different TV stand models. Model numbers are printed on the packaging and instruction's sheet.

The stands were sold by Best Buy (model 402875) and other retailers nationwide from May 2004 through August 2008 for about between $220 and $260. They were made in China.
Consumers should immediately remove the TV from the stand and contact Studio RTA to receive a free repair kit.
