March 07, 2023
Another big recall made the news recently.
Cosori is recalling about 2 million air fryers in the United States, 250,000 in Canada and 21,000 in Mexico.
A wire connection in the air fryers can overheat, posing fire and burn risks.
The firm has received 205 reports of the air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating, and smoking. They include 10 reports of minor burns and 23 reports of minor property damage.
The model number is printed on the bottom label of each unit and on the user manual. The units are 3.7 and 5.8 quarts and were sold in black, gray, white, blue, or red. Check here for the model numbers.
The air fryers were sold at Best Buy, Target, and The Home Depot stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Adorama.com, Bedbathandbeyond.com, Cosori.com, eBay.com, Homegoods.com, Kohls.com, Lowes.com, Macys.com, QVC.com, Staples.com, Vesync.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com, Wellbots.com, and Woot.com from June 2018 through December 2022. The cost was between $70 and $130.
