CPSC, The Metal Ware Corporation Announces Recall of Deep Fryer Covers

In Cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), The Metal Ware Corporation is voluntarily recalling approximately 47,000 deep fryer covers. Deep frying of high moisture foods can trap excess moisture in the cover which can drain into the oil reservoir, causing the appliance to boil over, posing the risk of burns from hot oil spilling onto consumers.

The company has received 7 reports of hot oil spillage, including one report of a consumer requiring medical attention.

The recalled covers are a part of a deep fryer appliance that is sold under the NESCO brand name. The deep fryer has a stainless steel body and black plastic cover. The deep fryer models that use the recalled cover are listed below. The model number is located on the backside of the control panel, just above the power cord receptacle.

Brand Names Model Numbers
Nesco DF-250T, DF-1250T, and DF-1250TL

Consumers should stop using this deep fryer immediately. Register here online or contact The Metal Ware Corporation toll free at 1-800-726-4457 to arrange for a free replacement cover kit and complimentary gift.

The new cover has following printed warning message: "Attention: Remove lid when frying French fries and high moisture food. Ensure both the lid and tank are completely dry after washing and before use" . If the cover of your deep fryer already has this warning message, this recall does not apply to you.
