February 14, 2020 — A recall has been issued for about 70,000 ceiling fans that were sold at Lowe’s after 10 people were hit by broken fan blades.
The manufacturer, Fanim Industries, has received 210 reports of fan blades breaking or ejecting off of the Harbor Breeze Santa Ana ceiling fan, including 10 reports of people who were hit by broken fan blades.
The problem is that the fan’s blade holders can break, which poses an injury hazard to bystanders.
The recalled fans were sold exclusively at Lowe’s stores nationwide, and online at www.Lowes.com, between May 2014 and January 2016 for about $150.
The recalled fan is a 48-inch Harbor Breeze Santa Ana Ceiling Fan, with Model LP8294LBN and UPC code 840506599178.
Consumers can find the model number on the fan motor. The model number is also printed inside the battery compartment cover for the handheld remote control.
The fan has two dark walnut fan blades, brushed nickel blade-holders, and a frosted white glass globe that contains a light bulb.
Fanim Industries is offering a free set of replacement blade holders.
