Two million Cosori Air fryers are being recalled for safety reasons in the US, Canada and Mexico. The company is voluntarily recalling and replacing certain fryer models after an investigation found that the closed end crimp connectors on recalled fryers – responsible for making electrical connections between certain wires – may pose an increased risk of fire and burns.
Cosori makes some of the best air fryers and as a result is one of the leading air fryer brands in the US so there are many models out there. In collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada and Mexico Procuraduría Federal del Consumidor (Profeco), Cosori has announced a notice to consumers. Here are the affected air fryers and what to do if you have one.
