The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Air Comfort Products, a division of Emerson Electric Co., have announced a voluntary recall of Emerson Corsair Ceiling Fans. The fans were manufactured in China and the recall involves about 870 units.
The CPSC noted that the ceiling fan's hanger bracket can spread apart due to heat from the motor and/or out-of-balance operation, causing the fan to fall from the ceiling and posing a risk of injury to bystanders. Emerson is aware of three reports of these Corsair fans falling from the ceiling and no injuries have been reported.
The recall involves Emerson Corsair model ceiling fans with two blades and 44- or 52-inch blade spans. The fans were sold in two finishes, oil-rubbed bronze and antique pewter. They were sold at fan and lighting stores nationwide and various websites, including Emerson’s site and Amazon, from January 2009 through June 2012 for between $450 and $530.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ceiling fans and contact Emerson Air Comfort Products to schedule a free repair.
