(AP) - Millions of box fans are being recalled because of fire risk.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Thursday of about 4.8 million box fans made by Pennsylvania-based Lasko Products Inc. The commission says an electrical failure in the fan's motor can pose a fire hazard.
No injuries have been reported. But the company has received seven reports of fires associated with motor failures. That includes two house fires and one barn fire — all of which involved extensive property damage.
The fans were made in the United States and sold at mass merchandisers nationwide from July 2002 through December 2005.
