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.
