Ceiling followers over blades that peel off and fly off


We're not sure if you've ever had this problem, but have you ever considered the possibility of our ceiling fans' blades flying off during use? If you've never had this thought, do so now and it seems like it is a possibility as a company calling itself King of Fans announced a recall.

In case the name wasn't obvious, this is a fan-making company. Specifically, the company is recalling its 54-inch Mara ceiling fan after multiple reports from customers that the blades came off during use. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least two of the reports appear to be related to injury, while four reports include property damage as a result of the blades peeling off.

According to King of Fans, only certain models of the Mara ceiling fan are being recalled and those who own the recalled models are advised to discontinue use immediately. "If consumers observe blade movement or uneven gaps between the blades and the fan body, or movement of the clip during the inspection, they should contact King of Fans immediately for a free replacement ceiling fan."

The company also claims that this issue was caused by an isolated manufacturing defect. Home Depot, which the fans were selling, also voluntarily recalled the product on behalf of its customers when they learned of the problem.
