About 4.8 million box fans have been recalled by the manufacturer, Lasko Products Inc., of West Chester, Penn. An electrical failure in the fan’s motor poses a fire hazard to consumers. 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. This recall involves Lasko box fans with model numbers 3720, 3723, and 3733 and Galaxy box fans with model number 4733 that have the date “2002-03″ or “2003-04″ stamped on the bottom of the metal frame. “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 fans were sold at mass merchandisers nationwide from July 2002 through December 2005 for between $12 and $25. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fans and contact Lasko to receive a free fused plug safety adapter.
