What's the Problem?
This recall affects PowerXL Model ESWM02 (5 inch) and Model ESWM03 (7 inch) Stuffed Wafflizer waffle makers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) [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.
