Mfr-Bulletins: Sharp recalls 373,000 televisions over fire concerns...
Sharp News


WASHINGTON (AP) - Sharp Electronics Corp. is recalling about 373,000
televisions after receiving reports that they pose a fire hazard.

The Mahwah, N.J., company 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 said Thursday.

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.

The recall affects the following Sharp 27-inch conventional tube television
models: 27RS50, 27RS100 and CSR5027. The televisions were made in Mexico.

Electronics retailers, department stores and mass merchandisers sold the
televisions nationwide from March 2001 through February 2005 for about $250.

Consumers are advised to unplug the televisions. Free repairs are available
by contacting the company through its Web site www.sharpusa.com/tv or by
calling 800-291-4289.
