JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The heating element of a mini deep fryer poses fire and burn hazards.

That is according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission who issued the recall Thursday.

The CPSC states ALDI is recalling its Ambiano mini deep fryers.

There are at least three reports of the fryers catching fire, including three reports of minor property damage.

No injuries were reported.

About 35,000 units were sold at ALDI stores nationwide from February 2018 through March 2018 for about $15.

Consumers should stop using the fryer immediately and take it back to their local ALDI store for a full refund.
