Submission Nintendo recalls three million Wii straps

MartinJW writes: After an increasing number of reports of the Wii projectile effect Nintendo appear to have bowed to pressure and are now recalling 3.2 Million straps. The strap is supposedly designed to prevent the innovative wireless controller from leaving the hand during vigorous bouts of gaming, but despite numerous warnings in games telling you to use it at all times it would appear that even the most safety conscious are wrecking Mom and Dads expensive LCD television when the strap snaps and the device hurtles across the room to embed itself in the television screen.

The recall affects all Wiis sold worldwide and almost all units currently on shelves in shops, but it is not yet clear how customers can return their straps and get replacements.
