Durabrand DVD player recalled

Walmart has issued a recall for their $30 Durabrand DVD player as this device is touted to be a high-risk product that can overheat and basically burn the house down under selected circumstances. Currently, there are a dozen cases of the Durabrand DVD player overheating, where five of those actually caught fire and damaged some property. This recall will see 1.5 million DVD players affected, where they were sold at Walmart from January 2006 to July 2009. Nice to know Walmart is offering a $30 cash refund for each return, except that today’s $30 isn’t really worth the $30 of 2006.
