CPSC, Vaxcel International Co. Ltd. Announce Second Recall of Ceiling Fans

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of product: Ceiling Fans with Light

Units: 1,200

Manufacturer: Vaxcel International Co. Ltd., of Glendale Heights, Ill.

Hazard: These ceiling fans were assembled without the proper wire insulation sleeving, which could result in exposed wiring. Consumers could receive an electrical shock during installation or removal.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: These down-rod-mount, dual-motor, 36-inch ceiling fans were sold in chrome, stone white, brush nickel, polished brass, antique brass, or weathered patina finishes. Model number 355-6645 is printed on the box and on a label located on the central housing of the ceiling fan. The brand names of the fans are “Aire Tek” and “Turn-of-the- Century Apollo Series” which is written on the packaging only. A label located on the central housing of the ceiling fan displays the File Number “E215078,” the UL Listing Mark, and the model number 355-6645. Vaxcel had previously recalled the same model fan sold under the “Aire Tek” brand name.

Sold at: Menard stores nationwide between January 2002 and May 2002 for between $350 and $450.

Manufactured in: Taiwan

Remedy: Consumers should contact Vaxcel to verify if they have one of the recalled ceiling fans and to receive a free replacement ceiling fan if they do. To avoid the risk of shock while checking or removing a recalled fan, consumers should turn off the power source to the fan. Consumers are encouraged to use a professional electrician. Vaxcel will reimburse consumers up to $75 for charges incurred in removing recalled fans.

Consumer Contact: Call Vaxcel at (800) 482-9235 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
