The U.S. Consumer Product Safety and Commission has announced that two million Cosori Air Fryers are being recalled due to fire and burn hazards. These devices pose a serious risk to consumers, and we urge you to immediately return them to the retailer where you bought them.
About 250,000 air fryers in Canada and 21,000 air fryers in Mexico have been recalled because they may pose a fire hazard.
The CPSC has just issued a warning about air fryers, and their owners are urged to take action. According to the agency, a wire connection in these appliances can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard.
So far, Cosori’s air fryers have been reported burning, melting, overheating, and smoking. The CPSC has received 205 reports of this, including 10 reports of minor superficial burns and 23 reports of minor property damage.
Both the CPSC and Cosori have advised consumers who have been impacted by the recall to immediately stop using the products and contact Cosori for a free replacement.
“All of our products are rigorously and routinely tested for consumer safety and are in full compliance with established industry standards,” Cosori stated on its official recall website. “COSORI is committed to the safety of those who use and love our products, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.”
The air fryers sold for between $70 and $130 nationwide from June 2018 through December 2022.
The recalled products were sold at a variety of retailers, including Best Buy, Target, The Home Depot, and online retailers including Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Homegoods, Kohl’s, Lowe’s, Macy’s, QVC, and Walmart.
