Illinois Consumers Should Stop Using These Air Fryers ASAP
When a company gets reports that over 200 of its units are catching fire, burning, melting, overheating, or smoking--along with 10 burn injury reports and 23 instances of property damage, you can see why they'd launch a voluntary recall.
Our household, thus far, remains an air-fryer free home, but I know how wildly popular air-fryers have become over the last few years, so I'm sure many of you will want to take a look at the one you have sitting on your counter at home.
Better you do it now than having firemen standing in your kitchen at some point in the future.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Says That Two Million Cosori Air Fryers Are Being Recalled Here, 250,000 In Canada, And 21,000 In Mexico
On the Cosori website, they say they've figure out what the problem is, and they're going to replace the recalled units at no charge to customers:
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. COSORI customers with a recalled air fryer will be offered a replacement product.
