WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) worked with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to develop a new safety standard that calls for "break-away" power cords for electric deep fryers. This new power cord will break away if a child pulls on it, preventing the deep fryer from tipping over and spilling scalding hot cooking oil on the child. The new requirements also apply to electric fondues and electric multi-purpose pots that use cooking oil.
