Cosori recalling 2 million air fryers for fire risk
Cosori is recalling more than 2 million air fryers sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico because their wire connections can overheat and cause a fire risk.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Thursday, saying Cosori had received 205 reports of air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating or smoking resulting in 10 reports of minor burns and 23 reports of minor property damage. The agency said consumers should stop using the air fryers immediately.
The recall involves multiple model numbers in 3.7-quart and 5.8-quart sizes. All of the units have the Cosori brand name on the front.
The air fryers were sold between June 2018 and December 2022 in Best Buy, Target and Home Depot stores and online at Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s and other retailers. They cost between $70 and $130.
Consumers should contact Cosori at recall.cosori.com to receive a free replacement air fryer or another product. Consumers must provide their contact information and a photo of their recalled unit. Receipts aren’t needed.
Owners of Cosori air fryers complained Thursday on Twitter and Facebook that the recall registration form wasn’t working. Cosori replied Thursday: “We are currently working to adjust the form and backend; kindly try registering later today or tomorrow. We appreciate your patience at this time!”
The Cosori brand is owned by Vesync, a company based in Shenzen, China.
