More than 190000 ceiling fans recalled after blades fly off

NEW YORK (NEXSTAR/AP) — More than 190,000 ceiling fans sold at Home Depot are being recalled after reports that the blades fell off while spinning, hitting people and causing property damage.

The Hampton Bay Mara indoor and outdoor ceiling fans were sold this year between April and October at Home Depot stores and via its website.

They also come with a white color-changing LED light and remote control.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said owners of the fans should stop using them immediately and inspect them for blades that aren’t secure.

“If consumers observe blade movement or uneven gaps between the blades and fan body or movement of the clip during inspection, consumers should immediately contact King of Fans for a free replacement ceiling fan,” the CPSC said.
