What’s the Problem?

Affected fans come with 5 reversible blades in a distressed mocha finish and have a 70-inch blade span, CPSC said. The manufacture date in MM-YYYY format can be found on a label on top of the motor housing.
The recalled ceiling fans were sold online and at Lowe’s stores from April 2010 through December 2018 for about $230.
