March 10, 2022 — The mother of a child who was seriously burned by an exploding pressure cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit was filed by Tosha O., mother of “M.G.O.,” a minor child from Colorado who was burned by a Bella 6-Quart 10-in-1 Multi-cooker (Model Number M-60B23G).
On January 5, 2020, the child suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” as a result of the “pressure cooker’s lid being able to be rotated and opened while the pressure cooker was still under pressure,” according to the lawsuit.
The incident occurred as a result of the failure of the pressure cooker’s supposed “safety locking lid,” which was advertised with the following claim: “The lid will not come off when it is in the LOCK position.”
Instead, the plaintiff alleges that she was able to easily twist open the lid when there was still a dangerous amount of pressure inside the unit, resulting in an explosion of scalding-hot food and liquid.
The Bella Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on December 9, 2021, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado — Case Number 1:21-cv-03306.
