If you own a Cosori air fryer, don't use it until you read this.
Cosori, which makes some of the most popular air fryers sold on Amazon and other online retailers, has issued a recall of around two million of its air fryers sold in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
The recall, which was issued on February 23, 2023, occurred as a result of "205 reports of the air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating and smoking" due to a wire connection that can overheat inside the unit, according to the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission.
According to the CPSC, there were 10 reports of minor, superficial burn injuries and 23 reports of minor property damage.
