The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Yamaha today issued a recall on around 4,300 in-ceiling and in-wall speakers after reported incidents of the speakers falling out of their mounts. 14 reports have been filed by consumers thus far with no reported cases of injuries.

The impacted Yamaha products are select serial numbers of the In-Ceiling Speaker NS-IW360C and In-Wall Speaker NS-IW660. Both models have a white rim and grill and black interior. The hazard being reported is that on some speakers, the mounting clamps can break, causing the speaker to fall and potential injure someone.

The speakers, which are made in China, were sold at retail outlets from January 2006 through March 2006. For more information, consumers can either contact Yamaha at (800) 609-2624 or visit a special information Web site.
