This voluntary recall involves specific units of the Cuisinart electric smoker identified by product number 85-1153, which have the following batch codes inscribed on them:

The electric smokers are black with the name "Cuisinart" printed on the stainless steel door. The product has five cooking racks and a thermostat to control the temperature.

The affected Cuisinart electric smokers are being recalled as a precautionary measure due to safety concerns that gas may build up within the unit causing the door on the smoker to open while the unit is in use.

Canadian Tire has received five reports of the door on the smoker opening while in use. No injuries have been reported. Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these electric smokers.

The recalled Cuisinart electric smokers were sold between December 2013 and May 2014. Approximately 2,572 units of the affected Cuisinart electric smokers were sold at Canadian Tire stores across Canada.

Affected products were manufactured in China and imported by Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited, Toronto, Ontario.

Consumers should immediately stop using the affected Cuisinart electric smoker and return them to their local Canadian Tire store for a refund.
