The company said it has received “a small number” of reports of overheating and melting involving the Gem 65 8-in-1 Multicooker.
Overheating can cause “localized melting damage to the underside of the product,” according to the company.
The problem poses a possible fire hazard and a risk of property damage. No injuries were reported.
Consumers should check the label on the bottom of the pressure cooker, locate the batch code, and see if their cooker is affected.
The recalled codes include: 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734 and 1746.
Instant Pot is warning owners of the popular multi-cookers to immediately stop using it if one of those codes matches their unit.
The company said in a Facebook post:
We want you to know that we take any problem with our products extremely seriously as safety and quality are our primary concern, and we are working cooperatively with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).”
