Brooklyn Lollipop Has Recalled Electric Fans

Brooklyn, NY  (SafetyAlerts) - Brooklyn Lollipop Imports & Exports, Inc. has recalled about 22,000 electric fans. These electric fans have undersized wiring, use a power plug that is not polarized, have an improperly sized grill, and overheat, all of which could cause electrocution, electric shock, fire, and finger entrapment hazards to consumers.

The recalled electric fans, which have the brand name "Lollipop" printed on the fan blade cover, have model numbers V1185, V1186, V1865 and V1783, which can be found on the motor housing. The V1185, V1186, and V1865 models have labels that read, "Hi Velocity Lollipop Air Circular." The three-speed, four-position fans are either floor mounted or table top units. The model V1783 has a clip-on base. These fans were manufactured in China.
