70K ceiling fans sold at Lowe's recalled because blades can become dangerous projectiles

About 70,000 Harbor Breeze Santa Ana ceiling fans that were sold exclusively at Lowe's are being recalled because the blades can break off and cause injuries.

There have been 210 reports of the blades breaking or ejecting from the fan, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. That includes 10 reports of the blade hitting customers.

The 48-inch fans have model number LP8294LBN and UPC code 840506599178. The model number can be found on the fan motor, as well as on the inside of the battery compartment cover of the included remote.

The recalled fans have two dark walnut fan blades, brushed nickel blade arm holders and a frosted white glass globe containing a light bulb.

Consumers should immediately stop using the fans and contact Fanim Industries for a free set of replacement blade holders.
