The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Delta Electronics (Dongguan) Co., of China, is recalling approximately 68,000 bathroom exhaust fans. Sold exclusively at Lowe’s under the Harbor Breeze Bath Fans with Heater and Light, the fan’s heater blades can fail to rotate properly, causing the product to overheat and posing a fire hazard.
The firm has received 11 reports of the fan overheating with smoking or flames within the fan housing, including three reports of minor property damage. The product was sold nationwide at Lowe’s stores and Lowes.com from September 2010 through March 2012 for about $90.
Consumers should stop using the recalled bathroom exhaust fans immediately and contact Delta Electronics Dongguan to schedule a free repair by a trained service technician.
