{heads Up}Thousands of Sharp TVs Recalled as a Fire Hazard

Thousands of Sharp TVs Recalled as a Fire Hazard

A New Jersey company is recalling about 373,000 television sets after receiving reports that they pose a fire hazard.

Mahwah, NJ-based Sharp Electronics is not aware of any injuries resulting from 23 reported television fires. But it has received reports of property damage, including one case that caused more than $20,000 in damage.


The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall, which affects the following Sharp 27-inch conventional tube television models: 27RS 50, 27 RS 100, and CSR 5027.

The power buttons on the televisions can be pried off and the sets can ignite if something such as a crayon, straw or metal object is put in the hole.
