Air Comfort Products is recalling about 870 of its Emerson Corsair Ceiling Fans. Because the ceiling fan’s hanger bracket can break apart from excessive heat coming from the motor, the fan can fall from the ceiling and cause injury to bystanders. Although no injuries have been reported, Emerson has reports of at least three fans falling from the ceiling.
