The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the air fryers can over heat, causing the handles to melt or break. It can also cause the glass door to shatter, potentially burning or cutting the user and start a fire.

Best Buy said it got 24 reports of overheating, melting or shattering glass, including six reports of the air fryers catching on fire. So far, no one has reported any injuries or property damage.
