Best Buy stated Thursday that it has received complaints from 68 U.S. residents as well as 36 Canadians about the ovens and fryers overheating. This was in a notice published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Two injuries were reported -- one that involved a child's leg and seven that caused minor property damage.
Recalled air fryers and ovens should be stopped and returned to Best Buy. Best Buy will issue a credit for the refund. Custoners will be issued store credit equal to $50, or the amount indicated on the receipt. The retailer stated that the credit is available without the need for a receipt.
This recall affects Insignia Analog Air Fryers, Insignia Digital Air Fryers and Insignia Air Fryer Ovens. The following model numbers are involved: NS–AF32DBK9; NS–AF32MBK9; NS–AF50MBK9; NS–AF53MSS0; NS–AF53MSS0; NS–AF53MSS0; NS–AF55DBK9 and NS–AFO6DBK1
Each unit has the brand name Insignia on its top or front. A rating label is located on the underside. It identifies the model number and the brand.
The recalled fryers were manufactured in China and imported to Richfield, Minnesota-based Best Buy. They were sold at Best Buy stores and online between November 2018 and February 2022, for $30 and $150.
Best Buy stated that it sold approximately 635,000 of these recalled products in the U.S., and another 137,000 in Canada.
