A popular waffle maker sold at New Jersey Walmart, Kohls, Best Buy and Home Depot stores is under immediate recall, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging consumers to "immediately stop using" the appliance.
The recall involves the PowerXL Stuffed Wafflizer Waffler Makers made by Empower Brands.
Dozens of consumers have been burned by hot batter or stuffing being ejected from the appliance. Some of the injuries required medical attention.
The CPSC advises: "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."
