BALTIMORE, MD—Over 180,000 ceiling fans that were sold at U.S. Home Depot stores are being recalled.
King of Fans is recalling Hampton Bay 54-inch Mara Indoor/Outdoor Ceiling Fans due to the risk of the blades becoming detached while the fan is in use.
Consumers should immediately stop using the ceiling fans and inspect the ceiling fans using the instructions at www.kingoffans.com/MaraRecall.htm.
If consumers observe blade movement or uneven gaps between the blades and fan body or movement of the clip during inspection, they should immediately contact King of Fans for a free replacement ceiling fan.
The firm has received 47 reports of the blade detaching from the fan, including two reports of the fan blade hitting a consumer and four reports of the blade causing property damage.
The fans were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide and online from April 2020 through October 2020 for about $150.
