190,000 ceiling fans recalled because the blades detach and fly off

More than 190,000 ceiling fans have been recalled because the fans’ blades can detach while in use.

King of Fans, a Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based company that makes the 54-inch Mara ceiling fans, announced the recall on Wednesday after receiving 47 reports of blades detaching, according to a statement from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The fans had been sold at Home Depot stores nationwide.

Two of those reports indicated a detached fan blade hit someone, the commission said. Four reports said a blade caused property damage.
