Hampton Bay Ceiling Fans Recalled Over Fall Hazard
The CPSC on Dec. 23, 2020, announced a recall for about 182,000 Hampton Bay Mara ceiling fans sold at Home Depot stores nationwide over concerns that “the blades can detach from the fan while in use, posing an injury hazard to consumers.” This recall was initiated after the manufacturer received at least 47 reports of the blade detaching from the fan, including 2 reports of the fan blade hitting a consumer and 4 reports of the blade causing property damage. The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 21-171.
What’s the Problem?
This CPSC Recall began on October 7, 2020, and affects Harbor Breeze Kingsbury 70 inch indoor ceiling fans manufactured before December 2018.
Affected ceiling fans were distributed by HKC-US LLC, of Memphis, Tennessee, and sold online and at Lowe’s stores from April 2010 through December 2018 for about $230.
The fans come with 5 reversible blades in a distressed mocha finish, CPSC said. The manufacture date in MM-YYYY format can be found on a label on top of the motor housing.
Consumers who purchased a recalled ceiling fan should stop using it immediately and contact HKC for a new owner’s manual and light kit label to help ensure correct installation of the light globe.
