July 20, 2010 Updated Jul 20, 2010 at 3:34 PM EDT

American Signature Inc of Columbus, Ohio is recalling about 24,000 entertainment centers.

The recalled entertainment centers' shelves can detach and fall onto consumers when the entertainment centers are moved.

American Signature Inc. has received four reports of the shelf above the television collapsing, causing two injuries.

The recalled entertainment centers with model names "Arts and Crafts", "Vineyard Manor", "Lake Cottage", "Studio One", "West Indies" and "Plantation Cove" were sold in various colors including dark brown, natural, black and white with fixed or adjustable shelves.

They were sold at Value City Furniture, Rooms Today and American Signature Furniture stores from October 2002 through December 2009 for about $1,650.

The individual shelf was also sold separately for about $70.

American Signature Inc. is sending free repair kits to consumers who purchased the recalled entertainment centers.

Consumers should not move the entertainment centers until they install the free repair kit.

If the entertainment center must be moved, remove the center shelf above the television first.

Consumers should contact the store where they purchased the entertainment center if they do not receive the repair kit.

For more information, contact the store where the entertainment center was purchased.
