Kichler Lighting recalls ceiling fans due to injury hazard
Kichler Lighting is recalling about 38,900 52-inch LED indoor ceiling fans due to injury hazard.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the irons (arms) that hold the ceiling fan blades can detach during use, causing the blades to fall, posing an injury hazard.
This recall involves Kichler’s indoor ceiling fans with five blades, bronze accents, etched umber glass and an integrated LED module. The fans are 52 inches wide and have a Mediterranean Walnut finish. Model number 35153 is printed on the top of the fan’s motor housing.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ceiling fans and contact Kichler for instructions on receiving a free replacement ceiling fan.
Kichler has received about 62 reports of the fan blade iron breaking or detaching. Kichler has received one report of property damage but no injuries have been reported.
They were sold at Lowe’s and other lighting specialty stores nationwide and online at lowes.com from January 2016 through March 2020 for about $250.
