April 13, 2023 — Luxor Workspaces has recalled more than 85,000 plastic and metal audiovisual (AV) carts after 3 children were killed by falling TVs.
The problem is that the recalled AV carts are unstable when loaded with a heavy “box” shaped TV, also known as a CRT TV. Children can be crushed to death or seriously injured if they are hit by a falling TV.
Safety officials warned that 3 children died and 1 child was seriously injured after being crushed by a box-shaped TV that fell off an AV cart.
Thousands of these carts have been sold since at least the early 1980s. They are commonly found in households, schools, places of worship, daycare centers, and more.
The manufacturer is recalling three AV cart base models:
- WT42 “Tuffy” plastic cart
- W42/AVJ42/SS-AVJ42 metal cart
- LP-DUO/TPDUOEQ plastic cart
Instead of a refund, the manufacturer is warning consumers to never put anything weighing more than 25 pounds on any shelf of the cart.
Consumers can contact the company for a free metal plate that can be installed on the lower shelves to add stability, as well as new warning label stickers. For more information, visit luxorworkspaces.com/recall.
