•About 4.8 million box fans recalled for fire risk, 7/22•
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- About 4.8 million box fans are being recalled by a Pennsylvania company because they pose a fire hazard, the government said Thursday.
Lasko Products Inc. of West Chester, Pa., is recalling the fans as an electrical failure in the fan's motor can lead to a fire, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The problem was associated with seven reports of fire -- including two house fires and a barn fire -- that caused significant property damage, the commission said. No injuries were reported from the fires.
The U.S.-made fans were sold between July 2002 and December 2005 at major stores throughout the United States. They ranged in price from $12 to $25.
The commission said the recall affects Lasko box fans with the model numbers 3720, 3723 and 3733; and Galaxy box fans with model number 4733 that have the date "2002-2003" or "2003-2004" stamped on the bottom. Model numbers can be found stamped or printed on the bottom of the fans.
For those who own one of these fans, contact Lasko for a free fused plug safety adapter. The company can be reached at the toll-free number (877) 445-1314 or the website www.laskoproducts.com.
