The company has received 205 reports of air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating or smoking.
There have been 10 reports of minor burns and 23 reports of minor property damage, the agency said.
The CPSC announced the recall on Thursday with the agency warning consumers that they should stop using the air fryers immediately.
