VIZIO has recalled 245,000 of its E-Series LED flat-panel televisions due to a possible risk of injury.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the stand assembly can fail and cause the TV to tip over unexpectedly.

VIZIO has received 51 reports of tipovers, but no injuries.

The recall involves 39-inch and 42-inch TVs. The full list of serial numbers is below.

Consumers who own the recalled televisions should detach the stand, put the television in a safe location and contact VIZIO at 855-472-7450 or vizio.com to request a replacement stand.

Owners with wall-mounted televisions should also request a new stand assembly in case it’s needed in the future.

The recalled televisions were sold from December 2013 through June 2014 at Best Buy, Target, Walmart and several online retail stories including Amazon, Costco, Sams and others. The televisions sold from $370 to $450.

The flat panel televisions are black with “VIZIO” printed in the lower right corner of the television front and the VIZIO logo in the center of the back.

Model and serial numbers are printed on a label on the back of the television.

The following model and serial numbers are included in the recall:
