On April 21, 2022 and April 28, 2022, the CPSC announced the following recalls related to products that present fire hazards:

  1. Best Buy Recalls Insignia™ Air Fryers and Air Fryer Ovens Due to Fire and Burn Hazards. According to the CPSC’s website, “[t]he air fryers and air fryer ovens can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.”
