Kichler Lighting of Cleveland, Ohio, is recalling about 42,000 Kichler 52-inch LED indoor ceiling fans old in the U.S. and Canada.
The irons (arms) that hold the ceiling fan blades can detach during use, causing the blades to fall, posing an injury hazard.
The firm has received about 62 reports of the fan blade iron breaking or detaching, with one report of property damage. No injuries have been reported.
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.
The fans, manufactured in China, were sold at Lowe’s and other lighting specialty stores nationwide and online at www.lowes.com from January 2016, through March 2020, for about $250.
