PhotoAir King America of West Chester, Pa, is recalling about 8,200 Valencia Wall-Mounted Range Hoods sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The wall mounting anchors provided with the range hoods do not adequately secure the hood to the wall, posing an injury hazard.

The firm has received one report of a Valencia Range Hood coming loose from the wall soon after installation resulting in minor damage to the cook top. No injuries were reported.

This recall involves Air King Valencia wall-mounted range hoods in 30- and 36-inch widths. The Range hoods are approximately 18 inches high without the vertical exhaust duct cover.

The recalled range hoods are sold in stainless steel, white and black finishes. The Air King name is located on the motor housing behind the removable grease filters.

This recall only includes VAL and ESVAL series hoods.
