Sauder Woodworking Co., of Archbold, Ohio, is recalling about 592,000 TV/VCR Carts because they can tip over, causing possible injury or death when the cart and television fall.

There have been 13 reports of injury from these TV carts, including one death of a 19-month-old in North Wales, Pa., who suffered a fractured skull when the cart and television fell on her. There were four additional reports of injuries: another skull fracture and three reports of bumps and bruises.

Two models are being recalled, 2655 and 2755. Both are sold as kits, which require assembly and have identical parts. They come in a light oak and dark cherry finish. The model numbers are not located on the item but rather on the instruction booklet. The stands (29.5 × 18 × 27 inches) are equipped with two shelves and a lower storage area enclosed by two hinged doors.

The stands were sold for about $100 nationwide. Consumers should stop using the carts immediately. To improve the stability of the cart, remove the television and all the contents from the cart, turn it over and remove the four casters. Contact Sauder Woodworking Co. at (888) 800-4590 or for a free repair kit to further reduce the potential of the cart and television to tip.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is issuing a safety warning on paintball guns because the brass or nickel-plated valve that connects directly to the canister must not be removed from the canister when removing the canister assembly from a paintball gun. The valve must remain secure and rotate with the CO2 canister.

There have been two deaths related to CO2 canisters flying off paintball guns. In June 2003, a 15-year-old died after being hit in the head with a CO2 canister as he was removing it. In February 2004, a projectile CO2 canister that was removed by someone else killed a bystander.

CPSC still is investigating these situations and recommends using paint or nail polish to mark the brass valve and CO2 canister so you can see the valve and the canister rotate together while being removed from the gun. The canister assembly should unscrew from the paintball gun in about three or four full turns. If, upon finishing the fourth turn, the canister is not unscrewed, stop and take the gun to a professional. For more information, call the CPSC hotline at (800) 638-2772.
