October 18, 2020
About 280,000 Kingsbury 70-inch ceiling fans are being recalled by HKC-US.
The light globe can fall from its housing, posing an impact and laceration injury hazards.
HKC-US has received 76 reports of the light globe falling, including four laceration injuries.
This recall involves Harbor Breeze’s Kingsbury indoor ceiling fans manufactured before December 2018.
The bronze finish fans come with five reversible blades in a distressed mocha finish and have a 70-inch blade span. The fans also come with a frosted glass light and a remote control. The manufacture date in MM-YYYY format is located on a label on top of the motor housing.
The fans were sold at Lowes' stores nationwide and online at Lowes.com from April 2010 through December 2018 for about $230.
Consumers should immediately contact HKC to request a new owner’s manual and light kit label to help ensure correct installation of the light globe, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.
