Two million Cosori Airfryers have been recalled due to fire and fire hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety and Commission announced in a press release on Thursday.
Also, about 250,000 air fryers in Canada and 21,000 air fryers in Mexico have been recalled.
According to the CPSC announcement and an official Cosori recall website, a wire connection in the air fryers can overheat, potentially creating a fire and fire hazard.
Cosori has so far received 205 reports of its air fryers “catching fire, burning, melting, overheating and smoking,” including “10 reports of minor, superficial burns and 23 reports of minor property damage,” according to CPSC.
Both CPSC and Cosori have advised consumers affected by the recall to immediately stop using the recalled products and contact Cosori for a free replacement or a different Cosori product.
“All of our products are rigorously and routinely tested for consumer safety and are fully compliant with established industry standards,” Cosori said on the 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, priced between $70 and $130, were sold at retailers nationwide from June 2018 to December 2022.
The recalled units were sold at physical retailers including Best Buy, Target and The Home Depot, as well as online retailers including Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Homegoods, Kohl’s, Lowe’s, Macy’s, QVC and Walmart.
