Panasonic, bassinets and ground beef recalled

Panasonic 55-inch flat screen LED/LCD televisions with tabletop swivel stands are being recalled.

The mounting screws that connect the swivel stand to the television can come loose and cause the television to tip over and fall off the stand unexpectedly, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in injuries or death to children, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

About 755 units are being recalled.

The television and swivel stands were sold to hotels, government buildings and schools from July 2012 through March 2014 for about $1,825 for the television and the swivel stand.

Consumers using the swivel stand should immediately detach it, place the television in a safe location away from children and contact Panasonic for a free repair kit.

Multipro Baby Cradle N Swings is recalling about 1,000 bassinets due to failure to meet mandatory federal safety standards.

Consumers should immediately stop using the Multipro Baby Cradle N Swing, disassemble it and throw it away. Consumers who purchased the product on have been contacted directly and automatically issued a gift card refund for the full purchase price of the product.
