I was recently contacted by SANUS, the leading designer and manufactured of flat panel TV wall mounts, to share their new initiative with my readers. SANUS has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide to educate consumers about the risk of owning an unsecured flat panel TV. Do you own a flat panel TV?
A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:
· A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV.
· Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury.
· Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over.
· An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs.
· Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006 to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%.
