Lowe’s Recalls More Than 70,000 Ceiling Fans Over Fear of Injuries

Lowe’s is recalling more than 70,000 ceiling fans because faulty blades can fly off and cause injury.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that the manufacturers have received 210 reports of the fan blade breaking or ejecting from the Harbor Breeze 48-inch Santa Ana Ceiling Fan (model LP8294LBN), including 10 reports of a fan blade hitting consumers.

The CPSC says the fans were sold at Lowe’s stores nationwide and online at www.lowes.com from May 2014 through January 2016 for about $150. They advise that consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ceiling fan and contact the manufacturer firm for a free set of replacement blade holders.

Consumers can contact Fanim Industries toll-free at 888-434-3797 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, via email at recall@fanimation.com or online by going to www.FANIMATION.com and clicking on "recalls" for more information and to submit your request for replacement blade arm holders online.
