Thousands of TV's have been recalled by several major stores because of a risk of them suddenly catching fire.

The recall involves 32-inch flat screen TV's made by Coby.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it's received reports of six incidents of the televisions overheating, smoking, or catching fire.

It's advising people with the televisions to stop using them and unplug them until they can be repaired.

The company that makes the televisions is now out of business, but stores that sold them like Best Buy, Sears, and KMart are offering their own fixes.
