On March 14, 2024, Best Buy, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a recall of 187,400 Insignia brand air fryers and air fryer ovens in the U.S. and Canada. The recall comes following 24 consumer complaints reports of overheating and melting or glass shattering, including six reports of air fryers catching on fire.

The air fryers and air fryer ovens were found to be prone to overheating, which could cause the handles to melt or break or the glass on the door to shatter, creating the potential for fires, burns, and lacerations.

Each air fryer or air fryer oven will have the brand name Insignia on the top or front of the unit.
