Flat screen tv wall mount recall

Flat Screen Television Wall Mounts Model LF228* recalled

On September 7 2010 Health Canada recalled the Sanus Vision Mount model LF228* full-motion wall mounts distributed by Milestone AV Technologies LLC. The wall mounts were sold for flat screen televisions. Look for the model numbers on the UL sticker located on the wall plate.

What is the danger?

The elbow joint components on the wall mount's arm do not fit together properly, causing the attached television to tilt and possibly fall when the television is adjusted. This could pose an injury hazard to the person using the television.

At time of the recall Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

What should I do?

You need to inspect the wall mount to determine if the elbow joint fits properly and contact Milestone for instructions.

If you own a model LF228* product that has not yet been installed, a free replacement arm assembly should be ordered from Milestone Customer Service to be used for the installation. Alternatively, you may bring the LF228* back to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange.

If you own a model LF228* that has already been installed, please follow the inspection procedure on the firm's website to determine if their LF228* exhibits the manufacturing defect mentioned in the hazard identified.

If you want additional information, please contact Milestone Customer Service at 1-877-894-6280 between 8AM and 9PM CST Monday through Friday and between 10:30AM and 7PM CST Saturday through Sunday, or by mail at:
