In cooperation with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Matsushita Electric Corporation of America (Secaucus, NJ, U.S.) has recalled 500,000 combination TV/VCRs

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The TV/VCR cabinets can break when lifted by the ventilation holes in the top rear of the cabinet, permitting the TV/VCR to fall and injure hands and feet.

About 10 incidents have been reported in which the TV/VCR cabinet broke at the ventilation holes when lifted or carried, resulting in the TV/VCR dropping to the floor. Minor cuts and bruises have been reported in four incidents.

The recalled combination TV/VCRs are gray/black and have the following brand names: Panasonic, Quasar, RCA, or JCPenney. The cabinets have ventilation holes in the top rear of the cabinet. Only the 13- and 20-in Combination TV/VCR sets manufactured between January 1, 1995, and December 30, 1995, are recalled.

The recalled units were manufactured in the U.S. and were sold at retail stores throughout the U.S. from January 1995 through December 1996 for between U.S. $300 and $490.
