Consumer electronics maker Sony Corp. recalled an estimated 16,000 LCD televisions sold only in Japan that may cause electric shock.

The 28-in model KDL-L28HX2, manufactured between November 2003 and May 2005, was found to have design defects in parts used inside the display that may cause electric shock or throw home circuit breakers, Sony spokeswoman Mina Naito said.

One case of a problem has been reported, but there have been no injuries, she said. The model was not exported.

The recall is expected to cost 300 million yen (approx. U.S. $2.7 million) and not affect Sony's forecasts for a profit of 80 billion yen (approx. $722 million) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2006, down 51 percent from the previous year. (AP)
