Many in Louisiana have resorted to change in their kitchens and one thing many have added is the air fryer.

With that said, air fryers are a great addition to households as they come with so many benefits.

For one, air fryers have eliminated the use of grease in kitchens and air fryers are time-efficent. In addition to that, if you have an air fryer you know how easy it is to clean this appliance, and that in return just saves time.

However, there's a massive recall for one brand of air fryer that you need to be aware of, as some of you may have recently received one as a gift for the holidays.

The recall issued is for the PowerXL dual-basket air fryer. This particular brand and style is sold at stores like Target, Kohl's, and Walmart. The reason for the recall is due to the plastic U-Channel connector that optionally combines the two food baskets.

According to the Nation Wide Recall:

"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."

If you happen to have one of these units in your home you should stop using it immediately and contact Empower Brands for a full refund.

This particular air fryer was sold between August 2021 through October 2023.
