WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sauder Woodworking Co., of Archbold, Ohio, is recalling about 2 million television carts.

The television carts being recalled are brown oak (model 5155), black oak (model 5055) or white oak (model 5251). The model number is not on the cart, but it is on the instruction booklet that came with the cart. Most of the carts have the name "Sauder" on the casters or on a metal plate on the inside of the cart's door. The carts measure 29.5 inches wide, 25 inches high with casters and 15.5 inches deep.
