1.5 million Durabrand DVD players recalled because they can burn down your house!!!


This is what you get. You knew there was a good reason why that Durabrand DVD player only cost $30 at Walmart when the rest averaged $80. It’s because they can catch on fire, burn down your house, and kill your cats according to a recall. So far there have been 12 cases of the players overheating with five of them catching on fire and causing property damage. Think of the cats! The recall affects 1.5 million DVD players sold at Walmart from January 2006 to July 2009. Think hard. Is this the DVD player you bought for Grandma?

The good news is that it’s easy to get your $30 back. Just take you fire starting DVD player back to any Walmart and the lovely customer service person will refund your money. You can also call Walmart at (800) 925-6278 to bitch anonymously.
