Casablanca Recalls Ceiling Fans After Injury Accident
Too often, products we use regularly in our own home get recalled and we never hear about it. When consumers are not alerted, they are either injured or their property is damaged as a result of accidents involving defective consumer products.
In order to avoid accidents, companies should do all in their power to avoid ignoring potential equipment failure. If there’s a risk to a consumer that stems from a defective product, companies should act promptly. But too often, they are only made aware of the problem after people are injured.
A recall campaign launched with the help of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has shown that thousands of ceiling fans manufactured by Casablanca are being recalled over fall risks. The recall was launched after people reported incidents, which included one that resulted in injuries and property damage.
Recalled products come with blades that could become separated from the adapter, increasing the risk of an incident since the blades may fall while the fan is operating in reverse updraft mode. If that’s the case, bystanders may end up being exposed to injury risks.
The recalled products include 43 models of Casablanca ceiling fans manufactured in 2013 and 2014. You may identify recalled fans by their styles, which include Alessandria, Aris, Bel Air, Bullet, Caneel Bay, Heritage, Isotope, Riello, Stealth, Tercera, Trident, Whitman and Zudio, and a gold label on top of the motor housing. The brand’s name, Casablanca, can be found on the gold label.
Consumers with the recalled fans should stop using the fan until the company has inspected and fixed the problem. Contact Casablanca to schedule a home visit. The company should be able to fix the ceiling fans entirely for free.
