Best Buy is voluntarily recalling 187,400 Insignia brand air fryers and air fryer ovens sold nationwide because they can cause fire, burn and laceration hazards, according to a recall notice.

Why it matters: There have been 24 reports of "overheating/melting or glass shattering, including six reports of air fryers catching on fire," the notice posted on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website said.

  • No injuries or property damage have been reported, the recall said.
  • About 99,900 Insignia products sold in Canada are also being recalled.

Flashback: In December, around 319,000 air fryers sold at Target, Walmart and Kohl's nationwide were recalled for a burn risk.
