CPSC, Fanimation Announce Recall of Ceiling Fans

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fanimation Design and Manufacturing Inc., of Lebanon, Ind., is voluntarily recalling about 60,000 ceiling fans. The hanger bracket can break, which could cause the fan to fall from the ceiling and seriously injure anyone standing nearby.

Fanimation has received four reports of hanger brackets breaking, including three instances where the fan fell from the ceiling. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled ceiling fans include the following models: the Islander series with model number FP320 and date codes 01-00 through 03- 02; the Louvre series with model number FP1320 and date codes 01-00 through 03-02; and the Tropicana series with the model number FP1600 and date codes 12-01 through 04-02. The model number and date codes can be found on the manufacturer's sticker, located just above the motor of the fan.

Lighting showrooms, fan specialty stores and electrical distributors nationwide sold the fans from February 2000 through July 2002 for between $550 to $850.

Consumers should stop using the fans immediately and contact Fanimation at (888) 284-8938 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for a free, easy-to-install backup bracket. Customers will not have to disconnect the fan or remove the existing bracket. For more information, consumers can log on to the company's website at
