On December 17, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission posted a recall notice of approximately 30,000 units of Casablanca Fan Company’s ceiling fans due the fan motor and blades’ tendency to separate from the adapter while being operated in reverse updraft mode. The motor fan and blades may fall off and injure the consumer.
The manufacturer has been notified of eight cases of the blades and fan motor falling off, with one case including minor injuries and another case resulting in minor property damage.
There were 43 models recalled, and the list is on U.S. CPSC’s website. The recalled units have a gold label on the motor housing with “Casablanca” written on it. They were sold from January 2013 until December 2014 in lighting store showrooms nationwide and major home improvement retailers online.
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled fans and should contact the manufacturer for a free inspection and repair right away.
