Over 190,000 ceiling fans sold exclusively by Home Depot are being recalled due to injury risks caused by blades that can detach from the fan unit while in use.
According to a December 23rd recall notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recall involves 54-inch Hampton Bay Mara Indoor / Outdoor ceiling fans sold at Home Depot stores nationwide and online at homedepot.com from April 2020 through October 2020.
Recalled fans and UPC numbers include:
- Matte White: 082392519186
- Matte Black: 082392519193
- Black: 082392599195
- Polished Nickel: 082392599188
The recall comes after King of Fans, which distributes the Mara ceiling fans, received nearly 50 reports of blade detachment, including several reports of blades striking persons or property.
Consumers who see ceiling blade movement, gaps between blades and the ceiling fan unit, or clip movement during inspection are advised to contact King of Fans for a free replacement unit.
