Cosori recalling millions of air fryers for fire risk, injuries reported in Canada

 2 million air furnaces sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico because their cord connections can overheat and cause a fire hazard. 

 The  Product Safety Commission of the United States and Health Canada announced a joint recall on Thursday. 

 The agencies said that all consumers should stop using  air heaters immediately, even if they have not had problems. 

 The recall involves several model numbers with 3.7 quarts and 5.8 quarts. All devices have the Cosor brand  on the front.  Between March 2019 and December 2022,  air fryers were sold in Canada. 

The U.S.  Product Safety Commission said they are sold at Best Buy and Home Depot stores, as well as online at Amazon, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Wayfair, Staples and other retailers.

The company reported sales of 252,828  in Canada, more than two million  in the United States and 21,

90  in Mexico. 

 Health Canada reported that the wire connections on deep fryers can overheat, creating a  burn and fire hazard. 

 This month, the company  received 205 reports worldwide, including 56  in Canada, of  air heaters catching fire, burning, melting, overheating and smoking. 

 Globally, there are 23 reports of minor property damage  and 10 reports of minor superficial burns, including four reports from Canada.

Those who own both devices should contact Cosori at remember.cosori.com to receive a free replacement oven or other product. 

 Consumers must provide their contact information and a photo of the returned device. Receipts are not required to obtain a replacement unit, Health Canada said.
