RICHMOND, Va. - A news anchor in Virginia was trying to warn viewers about a rice cooker recall when he pulled a "Ron Burgundy" and it's going viral.

He read exactly what was in the teleprompter and ended up telling people to "check your panties" not what we assume was supposed to be pantries, where the rice cookers might be.

NBC 12 morning anchor Eric Philips and his co-anchor Karla Redditte had a great sense of humor about it.

In his defense, there was a typo in the script but he didn't notice until it was already too late.

We sympathize with the guy... it could happen to any of us on live TV.
