Insignia Flat-Panel LCD TV Recall

On April 2, 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Best Buy Co., Inc. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 13,300 Insignia 26-inch flat-panel LCD televisions. The power supply for the recalled televisions can fail, which poses a fire and burn hazard.

Best Buy has become aware of two incidences involving fire that caused damage to the television and the wall, with one minor burn injury reported.

The recall affects all Insignia 26-inch flat-panel LCD televisions with model number IS-LCDTV26 printed on the back of the set. The televisions were sold at Best Buy stores nationwide and online from August 2005 through June 2006.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled televisions immediately and contact Best Buy at 800-233-0462 for a replacement gift card.
