A company based in Memphis recently issued a recall of approximately 30,000 ceiling fans sold nationwide after learning that one consumer was injured by a defective unit, a report on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website stated on December 17.
Recall documents revealed that a consumer complained of sustaining minor injuries after the fan motor and blades of a Casablanca ceiling fan detached from the adapter and fell on him. The problem reportedly occurs when the affected ceiling fans are in the “reverse updraft” setting. Aside from the injury complaint, there were seven reports of the ceiling fans malfunctioning. At least 43 ceiling fan models manufactured in China between 2013 and 2014 are covered by the recall. People who own a defective Casablanca ceiling fan are advised to notify the Casablance for a free in-home repair.
