Millions of people across the country took the pandemic as a time to make necessary improvements on their homes. If you purchased a new ceiling fan as one of those improvements, you might want to keep reading as it might be part of the latest nationwide recall.

A notice was posted on the website of the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission that over 190 thousand Hampton Bay ceiling fans have been recalled by their manufacturing company, King of Fans. The Hampton Bay 54-inch Mara Indoor/Outdoor Ceiling Fans were recalled due to some blades detaching from the fan while in use, posing as an injury hazard for consumers.

The USCPSC says consumers should immediately stop using the ceiling fans and inspect the ceiling fans using the instructions at www.kingoffans.com/MaraRecall.htm or by visiting the QR code listed in the recall press release.  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.
