They were sold in white motor housing with white blades on one side and gray oak blades on the other side; black (natural iron) motor housing with gray oak blades on one side and aged oak blades on the other side.

Customers should immediately stop using the recalled fans and contact Hunter for a free replacement light kit. Customers can email or call the company at 866-326-2003 from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mountain Time Monday through Friday.
