Recall: Beware the flaming Walmart DVD player

If you own one of the 1.5 million Durabrand DVD players sold at Walmart since 2006, shut it off and head to your nearest Walmart -- they can ignite, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced.

Walmart told the CPSC the company received a dozen complaints about the DVDs overheating. Five of those incidents led to fires, the CPSC said.

The $29 Chinese-made DVD players were sold only at Walmart stores between January 2006 and this July. Anyone returning the DVD player to a Walmart store should receive a full refund.

For more information, contact Walmart weekdays between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
