Bose Recalling Speakers Due To Injury Hazard

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) - Bose is recalling more than 77 thousand speakers because the mounting components can break and cause the speakers to fall.

This recall involves FreeSpace DS40F in-ceiling/flush-mount loudspeakers manufactured before August 13, 2018, and all FreeSpace and EdgeMax in-ceiling/flush-mount loudspeakers installed in commercial cooking environments. All of the recalled speakers were sold to commercial buyers, not at retail stores.

The recalled speakers were sold in black and white colors with the word "Bose" engraved on the front. Customers can find the affected model numbers and manufacturing date on the back of the speaker.

The FreeSpace DS 40 models were sold between May 2010 and August 2018 for between $120 and $180.
