Millions Of Air Fryers Were Just Recalled Due To ‘Catching Fire’ & ‘Melting’
If you own a Cosori air fryer, your appliance could be one of the reported 2 million air fryers that have been recalled due to the risk of fire. Cosori, the maker of home cooking essentials, created a recall website with additional information on why the product was recalled and what models consumers should look out for.
"After a thorough investigation, we determined that in extremely rare circumstances, the closed-end crimp connectors within the recalled air fryers—which are responsible for establishing electrical connections between certain wires—can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards. The health and safety of COSORI users is our highest priority; we are recalling certain air fryers out of an abundance of caution," reads a statement on the recall website.
As CNN reported, "The [US Consumer Product Safety Commission] said it has received 205 incident reports of the air fryers 'catching fire, burning, melting, overheating and smoking.' That number includes 10 reports of 'minor, superficial burn injuries' and 23 reports of property damage."
A Frequently Asked Questions section on the recall website gives the following warning: "you must stop using the recalled air fryer immediately."
For customers returning their air fryer, you'll be sent a replacement once you've completed your recall registration. The recall registration form asks for your contact info, as well as shipping, product, and purchase information.
