About 70,000 ceiling fans exclusively sold by Lowe’s have been recalled following more than 200 reports of broken or flying fan blades.
The recall notice, announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday, affects the Harbor Breeze 48-inch Santa Ana ceiling fan, manufactured by Fanim Industries and sold between May 2014 through January 2016.
The CPSC notice says there have been 10 reports of a person being hit by the blades.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ceiling fan and contact the firm for a free set of replacement blade holders,” the notice says.
Recalled fans have two dark walnut fan blades, along with nickel blade arm holders.
The affected model is LP8294LBN — this can be found on the fan motor and inside the fan’s remote control battery compartment cover, the recall notice says. The recalled fans’ UPC code is 840506599178.
