PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Westinghouse is recalling 7,000 ceiling fans over safety concerns.

Officials say the two 60-watt light bulbs included with the fans can exceed the maximum wattage and overheat.

According to the CPSC, that can lead to a fire or a shock hazard.

Officials say the recalled fans come in a gun-metal, chrome or espresso finish as well as 24-, 30- or 42-inch diameter blades.

The CPSC says they were sold at home improvement stores, hardware stores, home centers and electrical product suppliers across the country as well as on Amazon.com from Jan. 2011 to Jan. 2012.

No injuries have been reported.
