Okay…this might be a little confusing, so bear with me. I’m not actually repeating anything here, but we first mentioned the recall of Durabrand DVD players sold by Wal-Mart back in August. Well, only recently, an expansion to that recall was announced.
The alert of the day is now to watch for COLORS of the Durabrand–where before, the recall was limited to silver colored DVD players, the recall has now been expanded to included the pink and purple DVD players as well. Here’s the complete rundown with UPC symbols:
– Silver unit: Model number 1002, bearing a 1799901002 UPC
– Pink unit: Model number 1002 PINK, bearing a 1799934100 UPC
– Purple unit: Model number 1002 PUR, bearing a 1799932100 UPC
So if you have any of these at home, you’re going to want to pack them up hasta pronto and take them back to Wal-Mart for a full refund. Don’t worry about having a receipt–just having the unit is plenty good enough since there’s a recall notice out.
And don’t brush this warning off, either. Reports have already come in about the units overheating and catching fire, so if you’ve got one of these, get it back to the store.
