9:55 pm on 10 July 2012

A supermarket chain is recalling a deep fryer due to fears the model is not safe.

Countdown says the handles of the the Abode three-litre stainless steel deep fryer, sold between 11 June and 9 July this year, may come off when lifted.

It warns there is a risk of oil spills and burn injuries if the appliance is moved.

Customers are advised to return the fryer immediately to any Countdown store for a full refund.
