THOUSANDS of air fryers have been recalled from numerous stores including Walmart, Target and Amazon over fire concerns.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday the recall of Newair’s Magic Chef digital air fryer oven.
About 11,750 of the products have been recalled from stores that carry the air fryer, the recall notice shows.
The company said the hot air fryer “can overheat and pose fire and burn hazards,” although no incidents or injuries have been reported.
The owners of the Chinese-made Newair Magic Chef air fryer are eligible for a refund.
Newair said those who own the black or white air fryer model “should immediately stop using the recalled air fryers and provide a picture of the rating label.”
The company said it provided an image of the label “to receive instructions on how to deactivate the air fryer and receive a refund in the form of a newair.com credit.”
The loan amount is $50 or the amount on the sales receipt, if greater, the company said.
No receipt is required for the $50 credit.
The air fryer was not only removed from Newair’s website, but also from the shelves of several stores and related websites, including Walmart, Target, Amazon and Wayfair.
The hot air fryer model sold in stores from July 2018 to September 2020 for between $115 and $138, according to Newair.
“Magic Chef is printed on the top of the fryers and the nameplate on the bottom bears the Magic Chef brand name along with the model number,” CPSC said in a statement.
“The air fryers are about 13 inches by 15 inches by 14 inches.”
Walmart, Amazon and Target did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
