This recall involves four LG Electronics 86-inch smart TV models. The TVs (not including the stands) are 86 inches diagonally, 43.5 inches high, 76 inches wide, and 2.4 inches deep.

"Consumers using the TV's supporting stand legs should immediately detach it and place the television in a safe location away from children," warned the commission.

It asked users to contact LG Electronics for instructions on how to inspect the unit and to obtain replacement screws and stand parts, including help from a technician for a free repair.
