In Florida, we all have ceiling fans in every room...if you've purchased a new one recently you might want to read this.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling more than 190-thousand ceiling fans that were sold at The Home Depot this year. Reports say the blades on the Hampton Bay 54-inch Mara Indoor/Outdoor fans can detach while the fan is on, because the locking clip fails. That means they fly across the room. So far, King of Fans, the Fort Lauderdale-based company that created the fans, said it received 47 reports of the blades disconnecting.
Two of the reports claimed the fan blade hit consumers and four reports claimed the blade caused property damage.
Those who purchased the fan should immediately stop using it and reach out to the company for a replacement.
