Cosori is recalling greater than two million air fryers sold in the USA, Canada and Mexico because their wire connections can overheat and cause a fireplace risk.
Health Canada announced the recall Thursday. The agency said consumers should stop using the air fryers immediately.
“As of February 2023 the corporate has received 205 reports globally including 56 reports in Canada of the air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating and smoking,” Health Canada noted within the recall.
“There have been 23 reports of minor property damage globally and 10 reports of minor, superficial burn injuries, including 4 reports in Canada.”
Of the 2 million affected products, 252,828 units were sold in Canada, Health Canada said.
Sold between March 2019 and December 2022
The recall involves multiple model numbers in 3.7-quart and 5.8-quart sizes. All the units have the Cosori brand name on the front.
The air fryers were sold from March 2019 to December 2022, Health Canada said. They were sold in Best Buy, Goal and Home Depot stores and online at Amazon, Walmart and other retailers.
Consumers should contact Cosori at recall.cosori.com to receive a free alternative air fryer or one other product. Consumers must provide their contact information and a photograph of their recalled unit. Receipts aren’t needed.
The Cosori brand is owned by Vesync, an organization based in Shenzen, China. Vesync has received 205 reports of air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating or smoking.
