Lindsley Undertakes Replacement Program for Ceiling Fans
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Lindsley Home Decorating Centers, Miami Lakes, Florida announces a notification and replacement program involving the "SMURF" and "SNOOPY" models of ceiling fans sold through Lindsley retail stores. These ceiling fans have a defective mounting bracket assembly, which could cause the ceiling fan to fall from its support. Serious injury could result to anyone who is struck by one of these falling ceiling fans. There have been three incidents of these ceiling fans falling, with two people receiving minor injuries.
