Monte Carlo is recalling their Cyclone ceiling fans due to an injury hazard. The company reported that the fan blade bracket can break and cause the blades to fall. This recall affects over 3,000 fans which were sold in the United States and Canada. The two different models have five blades that are 60 inches wide and weigh around 30 pounds.
