A potential faulty stand prompts Vizio to recall its 39-inch and 42-inch E-Series flat screen televisions.

The company says the stand assembly can fail and cause the television to tip over unexpectedly. Vizio has received 51 reports of the recalled televisions tipping over.

The recall impacts about one-quarter million television sold at Best Buy, Target, Walmart and other retail stores nationwide.
