CPSC Recalls Various Products Made in Mainland China
The CPSC has announced a recall of the following products made in mainland China.
Speaker Wall Mounts. VIVO has issued a recall for about 2,400 speaker wall mounts because the ledge on the front of the wall mount can loosen, allowing both the ledge and the speakers to fall and thereby posing an injury hazard to bystanders. This recall involves VIVO MOUNT-PLAY5 wall mount brackets designed to secure the Sonos Play 5 speakers to the wall or to any solid surface. The black or white VIVO wall mounts are made of steel and allow the speakers to tilt and swivel. They measure about eight inches tall by five inches wide and were sold at Amazon.com, eBay.com, Newegg.com, Rakuten.com and Walmart.com from March 2018 through June 2019.
