The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a significant recall affecting approximately 319,000 Power XL Dual Basket Air Fryers.

This recall is due to a burn hazard posed by these kitchen appliances. Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the recalled air fryers and contact Empower Brands for a full refund.

"This recall involves two models of the PowerXL dual-basket air fryer. The egg-shaped air fryers have two baskets that can be used separately or optionally combined into one large single basket. The recalled air fryers were sold in black or cinnamon colors. The 10-quart DUAF-10 model is about 17 inches long by 16 inches wide by 12 1/2 inches tall, and weighs about 14 1/2 pounds. The 9-quart DUAF-005 model is about 14 inches long by 13 inches wide by 15 inches tall, and weighs about 14 pounds. The product has a silver label on the front that says “PowerXL”. There is a white label on the bottom of each unit or on the unit’s power cord that lists the model number."

The CPSC, a federal agency responsible for protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with consumer products, has been instrumental in reducing injuries related to consumer products over the past five decades.

This recall is part of their ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of consumer products in the United States.

The recall of the Power XL Dual Basket Air Fryers is a precautionary measure to prevent potential injuries. The CPSC advises consumers to report any dangerous product or product-related injury on their website, www.SaferProducts.gov.

Additionally, consumers can contact the CPSC’s Hotline for further information.
