The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Lasko Products, Inc., has announced a voluntary recall of almost five million box fans. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

There is a fire hazard posed by an electrical failure in the fan’s motor. Lasko has received seven reports of fires associated with motor failures, including two house fires and one barn fire, resulting in extensive property damage. No injuries have been reported.
