Lasko And Galaxy Box Fans Recalled Fire Hazard

My friend “Sleepy” sits on the Consumer Product Safety Commission. He  sleeps a lot. His last sleeping jag  lasted around seven years. He woke up just in time to recall these fans here, made in 2003 and 2004. Check the model numbers listed against your fans.

A Pennsylvania company is offering fuses to owners of nearly 5 million box fans because they are a known fire hazard.

Lasko Products Inc. of West Chester voluntarily issued a recall on four models of its Lasko and Galaxy fans after receiving seven reports of fires caused by motor failures, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The fires resulted in extensive damage to two houses and one barn. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fans and contact Lasko to receive a free plug safety adapter.

The fans being recalled are Lasko models 3720, 3723 and 3733 and Galaxy model 4733. They were sold between July 2002 and December 2004 for between $12 and $25 at retailers throughout the United States.

The name “Lasko” or “Galaxy” is printed on the front of the fan. The model number is either stamped or printed on the bottom of the fans. The Galaxy 4733 involved the recall are those with the sages 2002-03 and 2003-04 stamped on the bottom of the metal frame.

Consumer may contact Lasko toll free at 877-445-1314 anytime or visit the firm’s website at http://www.laskoproducts.com.

Consumers may report incidents or injuries related to the recalled fans or any products to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission at http://www.saferproducts.gov.
