The products, manufactured in China, were sold at Best Buy stores nationwide and online at www.bestbuy.com, www.eBay.com and www.google.com from November 2018 through February 2022 for between $30 and $150.

According to the agency, the air fryers and air fryer ovens can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.
