Presto® Indoor Electric Smokers – Product Recall

As a trusted name in home appliances for over 115 years, National Presto Industries, Inc. (“Presto”) puts consumer safety first. In partnership with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Presto is voluntarily recalling all Presto® indoor electric smokers (Model No. 0601304 and Model No. 0601405).

Presto has received reports of smokers tripping circuit breakers and GFCI outlets. After examining the smokers, Presto has determined that the heating element/wiring on each unit is defective, posing a potential shock hazard to consumers. There have been no reports of injury or property damage, but out of an abundance of caution, Presto is recalling all units from the marketplace. If you have a Presto® indoor electric smoker, either Model No. 0601304 or Model No. 0601405, you should immediately stop using the unit and follow the instructions below to return your smoker for a refund. Presto is committed to the safety of all our products, and we sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause you.
