Washington D.C. (AHN) - Lasko Products Inc. is recalling 5.6 million
Lasko, General Electric, Galaxy and Air King fans because an electrical
failure in the motor can cause them to ignite.

The company has received 42 reports of fires possibly associated with
motor failures, including seven reports of burns and smoke inhalation
injuries. At least eight of the reported fires resulted in extensive
property damage.

The company is recalling the following product models:

3510, 3550, 3800 and 35105; Wind Machine models 3300 and 3521; Air
Companion model 3515; Air Director model 2135; and Wind Tunnel models
3400 and 3410.

-General Electric box fan model 106620 and cyclone fan models 106600 and

-Galaxy box fan model 3733.

-Air King cyclone fan model 9500 (20-inch deluxe pivot fan) and Air
Companion model 9515 (15-inch deluxe pivot fan).

The Associated Press reports the fans were sold for $10 to $25 at

February 2004.

Lasko to receive a free fan protection cord adapter.
