Posted on March 2, 2015 4:47 pm under Product Liability

Fanimation recalls around 9,300 ceiling fan after learning that the fan’s hub that holds the blade may detach when operated in reverse, posing an impact hazard to bystanders below, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on February 24.

The indoor and outdoor ceiling fan maker issued the recall after receiving two reports of falling ceiling fan hubs. The affected products were sold from June 202 to December 2014 at different lighting showrooms, electrical retail stores, and fan specialty shops nationwide and online. Affected products have model numbers P10AB, FP10AC, FP10BL, FP10PW, FP20AB, FP20AC, FP20BL and FP20PW. Model numbers are located on the product’s packaging.

Consumers are urged to stop using the product and to contact Fanimation to learn how to obtain a retention collar.

Falling ceiling fan components may not only cause property damage, they may also result in injurious accidents that could translate to lost time at work and unprecedented medical bills.
