October 13, 2011 12:00 am

We spotted this today:

“Sony (NYSE: SNE) has issued a voluntary recall for 1.6 million Bravia flat-panel TVs sold worldwide covering certain TV sold since 2007. A defective component reportedly causes them to be slightly more likely to melt or catch fire than the average TV. In September, a Japanese customer discovered that his TV started a small fire. Eleven incidents like this have apparently occurred in Japan since 2008.”
