The CPSC has announced a recall of the following products made in mainland China.
Ceiling Fans. Kichler Lighting LLC has issued a recall for approximately 38,900 ceiling fans in the United States as well as about 3,160 ceiling fans in Canada because the irons (arms) that hold the fan blades can detach during use, posing an injury hazard. This recall involves indoor ceiling fans with five blades, bronze accents, etched umber glass and an integrated LED module. The fans are 52 inches wide and have a Mediterranean Walnut finish. Model number 35153 is printed on the top of the fan’s motor housing. These products were sold at Lowe’s and other lighting specialty stores nationwide and on-line at www.lowes.com from January 2016 through March 2020.
Guitar Equipment. Yamaha Guitar Group Inc. has announced a recall of about 82,000 units of wireless equipment for electric guitars in the United States as well as about 4,700 units of wireless equipment for electric guitars in Canada because the lithium-ion battery can overheat and the battery cover can separate with force, posing fire and injury hazards. This recall involves Line 6 Relay G10, G10S (G10SR) and G10T digital wireless guitar systems that allow an electric guitar to be connected wirelessly to an amplifier. The system consists of a transmitter, a receiver and a charger. The receivers have both a 0.25-inch and an XLR output to connect to an amplifier or other audio equipment. The products are black in colour and the Relay G10T transmitter is stamped “Relay G10” and has a four-digit date code followed by a six-digit individual serial number. These products were sold at Guitar Center, Sweetwater Sound, Musicians Friend, Sam Ash and by other small retailers nationwide, as well as on-line at Amazon.com, from March 2016 through December 2019.
