The Lyon Firm is investigating burn injury claims for consumers who have purchased and used defective air fryers that have potentially been recalled. If you or a loved on has suffered a serious injury due to a malfunctioning air fryer, contact our lawyers for a free case review.

Years after their first huge wave of popularity, millions of air fryer units have now been recalled due to several design and manufacturing defects. Many people have been injured in the meantime, and some have moved forward with taking legal action against the manufacturers. Consumers have reported burn injuries, home fires, overheating, appliance melting, and other hazardous malfunctions.

Like many other kitchen appliances in American homes, there are many safety risks associated with air fryers. Consumers have reported that the materials on their appliances have been cheap and break or melt easily. Others have said their machines have caused electrical fires in the kitchen. Excessive smoke, melting plastic, leaking hot food, and creating excessive heat are other common complaints. The more serious threats can be the possibility of third-degree burns, house fires, and explosions.

Air fryers may even catch on fire due to overheating if they are made without an automatic shut-off mechanism. Sometimes the product instructions may be unclear or incomplete, leading to confusion amongst consumers.

If you or somebody you know has been burned by a defective air fryer, contact our lawyers immediately for a free case consultation.

Air Fryer Recalls

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regularly reviews whether a product poses a “substantial product hazard,” and the agency makes their recall decisions based on the following:

  • Type of defect—design defects, construction and packaging flaws, and inadequate warnings or incomplete instructions may lead to a product recall.
  • Volume of injury reports—one serious safety report can lead to a recall, but generally it takes dozens before the agency considers action 
  • Severity of risk—the CPSC takes into account the seriousness of the safety risk to consumers. If a death is linked to product, it is almost certain to recall the product, but if there is one burn injury, for example, the product may remain on the market.

Air Fryer Injury FAQ

For the most part, yes, air fryers can be safely used inside of your home. However, when there is an unsafe product on the market, it suddenly become a huge safety hazard. We have seen multiple air fryers recalled due to fire and burn injury risks. Any recalled item should never be used at home, and should be returned to the point of purchase. 

What are Some Known Air Fryer Accident Injuries?

The injuries involved are generally the same you might see from any other kitchen appliance accident. These could include serious burn injuries and scalding. 

Why Have Some Air Fryers Been Recalled?
  • Burn injury risk
  • Fire risk
  • Laceration Risk
  • Explosion Risk
What is a Failure to Warn?

A consumer product can be deemed defective if the manufacturer provides an inadequate warning or instructions for safe use. This may be the case if a manufacturer knew or should have known about a risk. In the case of a recalled air fryer, some plaintiffs have argued that the companies that produced the products should have known about a burn injury or fire risk existed.
