"Millions of Cosori Air Fryers Recalled for Fire Risk and Injury Hazard in North America"

Cosori is recalling over 2.2 million air fryers sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico due to a fire risk caused by overheating wire connections. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada have advised all consumers to stop using the air fryers immediately, even if they haven’t experienced any issues.

The recall affects multiple model numbers in 3.7-quart and 5.8-quart sizes, with the Cosori brand name on the front. The affected air fryers were sold in Best Buy and Home Depot stores, and online at Amazon, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Wayfair, Staples, and other retailers. In Canada, they were sold between March 2019 and December 2022, at a cost between $95 and $175.

The wire connectors in the air fryers can overheat, posing a potential burn and fire hazard, according to Health Canada. The company has received 205 reports globally, including 56 reports in Canada, of the air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating, and smoking. There have been 23 reports of minor property damage globally and 10 reports of minor, superficial burn injuries, including four reports in Canada.

Cosori is offering a free replacement air fryer or another product to affected customers who contact them at recall.cosori.com with their contact information and a photo of the recalled unit. The brand name Cosori is on the front of each unit, and the model number is printed on the bottom label of each unit and the accompanying user manual.

The units were sold in black, gray, white, blue, or red colors, and the Cosori brand is owned by Vesync, based in Shenzen, China.
