Instant Pot Recall
One of the hottest gifts of Christmas 2017 was the Instant Pot. Slate.com reported in November, 2017, that the cooker was created by a laid-off engineer from Canada back in 2010, but became a huge hit on Amazon in 2016. Now it's being recalled. The company says a gap between the pot and the heating plate can overheat and melt which could pose a fire hazard.

From the company's website:
If you have a recalled Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker, you should immediately stop using your Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker, unplug the unit and return it to Walmart to request a free replacement Gem 8-in-1 Multicooker. If you are not located near a Walmart store, please contact Double Insight to request a return shipping label and instructions for removing and returning the unit's power cord and rating label located on the underside of your Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker.
