If you have one of those tall floor fans, you better check and see if it is the brand "SMC."
SMC Marketing Corporation and Home Depot is voluntarily recalling about 2.2 million "SMC" brand oscillating floor fans.
The recall includes 18-inch, pedestal floor fans with model number SR-18 or SP-18. The model number is on the back of the fan beside the on/off button.
All of the recalled fans are white with the brand name "SMC" on the face plate of the front grill.
The turning motion of the fan can damage the electric power cord on these models. The damage to the cord can result in a short circuit and possible ignition of the plastic case, posing a fire hazard.
