What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) notice, this recall affects PowerXL Model ESWM02 (5 inch) and Model ESWM03 (7 inch) Stuffed Wafflizer waffle makers, [1].

Hot pieces of the waffle or stuffing can be expelled from the waffle maker during use or upon opening the product, posing a burn risk to consumers, CPSC said. The firm has received 44 reports of incidents including 34 burn injuries with three requiring medical attention.

The waffle makers were sold online and at Walmart, Kohls, Big Lots, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Best Buy, The Home Depot, Target, Sam’s Club, and other home goods stores nationwide from July 2021 through October 2022 for between $30 and $60.

Affected PowerXL Wafflizers were sold in the following colors: black, white, red, cinnamon, gray, lavender, lemon, ocean, slate, seafoam, and sage. The “PowerXL” logo is located on top of the waffle maker. The model numbers and date codes are printed on a tag attached to the power cord, with all date codes affected by the recall.

If you purchased a waffle maker that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Empower Brands to receive a free latch adaptor part and written instructions to complete the repair.

This recall began on May 18, 2023.

Pressure Cooker Burn Injuries

Much like the problems that led to the Wafflizer recall, the CPSC has issued multiple recalls in recent years over design defects in pressure cookers that have allowed scalding hot contents to be ejected on to consumers, causing serious burn injuries.

Design flaws have been associated many popular brands, including Instant Pot, Tristar Power Pressure Cooker, Sunbeam Crock-Pot, Ninja Foodi, NuWave Nutri-Pot and others, which lawsuits claim were manufactured with inadequate safety features that allow the lid to be opened while the hot contents are still cooking under pressure.

Newer pressure cookers are marketed as containing safety features like automatically locking lids, anti-block pressure release valves and other measures, which are intended to prevent the devices from exploding. However, users are still reporting severe burns and other injuries.

For this reason, a growing number of pressure cooker lawsuits are being filed against manufacturers across the U.S.
