No injuries were reported, but Kichler received about 62 reports of the fan blade breaking or falling off, including 1 report of property damage.
The recalled ceiling fans were sold at Lowe’s and other lighting specialty stores nationwide, and online at www.lowes.com, between January 2016 and March 2020 for about $250.
