What’s the Problem?
This recall affects all units of the Presto Indoor Electric Smoker Model No. 0601304 or 0601405, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
“The heating element/wiring on the smoker is defective, posing an electric shock hazard to consumers,” CPSC said. “The firm has received reports of five smokers tripping circuit breakers and outlets.”
The model number is located on the underside of the smoker and the word “Presto” appears on the top of the digital display. UPC codes 075741060132 and 075741060149 are located on the packaging.
The recalled indoor smokers were sold online and at Shopko, Sears, Kmart, Belk, Veterans Canteen Store and other home appliance stores nationwide from June 2018 through December 2020 for between $70 and $110.
If you purchased a smoker that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact the firm to receive return instructions, or return the product to the store where it was purchased for a refund.
This recall began on February 17, 2021.
