On Wednesday night, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that a massive number of ceiling fans have been recalled. They revealed that 144,000 of the popular home products are extremely dangerous because of several malfunctions.
CPSC revealed that the products were made in China and are from the popular brand called “Seasons.” The company that imported the lights is HD Supply of Atlanta, Georgia.
Reportedly, the ceiling fans come in white, brass, and bronze with “brushed nickel finishes.” Some of the fans include one light, three lights, four lights, or no lights at all.
The recall was over the fact that several cases of faulty ceiling fans have emerged. The HD Supply revealed that they have received at least 13 reports of a bracket on the fan breaking, causing a blade to fly off.
Below are the model numbers that are being recalled:
269702, 269712, 269714, 269716, 269718, 269808, 269810, 269812, 269816, 269818, 269820, 269822.
While no injuries have been reported yet from the flying blades, at least one minor report was filed due to property damage. However, if a ceiling fan is in a fast mode and a blade flies off, it could be extremely dangerous.
The company is now asking for customers who have purchased any of the above models to contact them immediately to find out the appropriate safety precautions. The company will send a free repair kit and go to other lengths to ensure their customer’s safety.
