Air fryers sold at Target, Best Buy, Amazon and other retailers were recalled by the manufacturer after it received hundreds of reports of the fryer overheating or catching fire, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Cosori said approximately 2 million of its air fryers in the United States were affected by the recall. An additional 271,000 units were sold in Canada and Mexico, the CPSC said.

The air fryers were sold in Target, Best Buy and Home Depot stores nationwide and online at Amazon, and numerous other e-commerce sites.

The recall came after the agency received 205 reports of faulty appliances. Of those, 10 cited "minor, superficial burn injuries" and 23 reports cited "minor property damage" as a result of using the air fryers.

The recalled units have a defect that can cause a wire connection to overheat and ignite a fire, according to the CPSC.

"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled air fryers and contact Cosori to receive their choice of a free replacement air fryer or another Cosori product," the commission said.

Cosori said it is "committed to the safety" of consumers who use its products, and apologized for any inconvenience tied to the voluntary recall.
