The news is out: [The maker of Hampton Bay ceiling fans has recalled about 182,000 fans sold at Home Depot because the blades can detach while in use.
King of Fans, of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, which issued the voluntary recall, said among the 47 reports it had received about blades detaching from the fan, there were two in which a consumer was hit by a blade and four in which the blade caused property damage, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The Hampton Bay 54-inch Mara Indoor/Outdoor ceiling fans were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide and online from April through October for about $150.
Customers purchased about 80,000 fans at Home Depot, spokesperson Christina Cornell said. The recall includes all units available for sale online and in stores, she said.]
