Roughly 70,000 ceiling fans sold exclusively through Lowes home improvement stores have been recalled, following hundreds of reports involving problems where the fan blades may unexpectedly break or fall from the fan, resulting in several injuries.
The Lowes Harbor Breeze ceiling fan recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 13, after the agency became aware of at least 210 reports of the fan blades detaching from the fan, with at least 10 reports of a fan blade hitting consumers.
According to the recall notice, the fan blade holders may fail to properly secure the blades. In this event, consumer and those nearby could be at an increased risk of trauma and laceration injuries if struck by a detaching fan blade.
