About 195,000 Ergotron Interactive Wall Mounts have been recalled in the United States, 60 in Canada, and 21,000 in Mexico, according to

The weld between the “VESA” style mounting plate and the mounting ring can fail, allowing the monitor or TV to fall. This poses a risk of injury to bystanders, according to the CPSC.

The model number and date codes are printed on the underside of the arms of the PLAY and ITV models.

Ergotron has received three reports of the monitor plate separating from the wall mount system. Consumers reported property damage to components of the wall mount unit. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately remove the TV/monitor from the mount and contact Ergotron for a free repair kit.
