March 31, 2022 — A woman who was burned by a Crock-Pot Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit accusing the manufacturer of selling a dangerous product.
The lawsuit was filed by Denisa A., a woman from Fullerton, California who claims that she was seriously injured by a defective Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-cooker (Model Number SCCPPC 600-V1).
The same model was later recalled in November 2020 after Sunbeam Products received “119 reports of lid detachment, resulting in 99 burn injuries ranging in severity from first-degree to third-degree burns.”
In April 2020, she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” as a result of opening the lid of the pressure cooker when it was still under pressure, “allowing its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body.
She blames the incident on the failure of the pressure cooker’s “safety measures,” which were advertised to keep consumers safe. Her lawsuit accuses Sunbeam Products of negligence for selling a defective product with “unreasonably dangerous” safety flaws.
The Crock-Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed against Sunbeam Products Inc. on March 28, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida — Case Number 9:22-cv-80485.
