WASHINGTON (WTNH) — Hunter fans announced Thursday that they are recalling 168,000 ceiling fans after it was discovered that an error in the installation instructions could cause parts to fall.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that Hunter is recalling their Hunter Contempo ceiling fans. Hunter reports that the owner’s manual instructs consumers to install the light globe incorrectly, which could cause the light globe to fall and potentially injure any one underneath the unit.
