The fans were exclusively sold at Lowe’s stores nationwide and online at www.lowes.com from May 2014 to January 2016 for about $150.
The recall involves the Harbor Breeze 48-inch Santa Ana Ceiling Fan, Model LP8294LBN, UPC code 840506599178. The model number is printed on the fan motor. The model number is also printed inside the battery compartment cover for the handheld remote control.
