Double Insight has recalled 104,000 Gem 65 8-in-1 Mutlicooker Instant Pots. 

The product, which was sold exclusively at Wal-Mart from August 2017 to January 2018, is being recalled due to customers complaining about the multicooker overheating and melting. 

The company called the product a fire hazard. 

The five barcodes affected are: 

  • 1728
  • 1730
  • 1731
  • 1734
  • 1746

The barcodes are located on the label underneath the multicooker. 

Customers with the listed barcodes are instructed to immediately unplug the product and bring it back to their local Wal-Mart for a free replacement with the safe Gem 8-1 multicooker. If a Walmart is not nearby, then customers should ship it directly back to the company.
