July 31, 2023 — Zavor has been sued by a woman who claims that she was burned by a defective pressure cooker.
The lawsuit was filed by Claudia C., a woman from Boca Raton who claims that her Zavor Versa Express Pressure Cooker (Model Number ZCWRA01) was dangerously defective.
The incident occurred in August 2019, according to the lawsuit. She claims that she was able to easily twist open the lid, which resulted in an explosion of hot food, steam and liquid onto her body.
She claims to have suffered “substantial burn injuries” due to a failure of the pressure cooker’s safety mechanisms to lock the lid.
She accuses the manufacturer of misleadingly advertising the “Advanced Safety Features,” such as a locking handle and a silicone gasket. The advertising materials claimed that the lid on her Zavor Pressure Cooker “won’t open when there is pressure inside the pot.”
Instead, she claims that the failure of the safety features allowed its “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker,” resulting in her burn injuries.
The lawsuit was filed against Market Solutions Group Inc. (doing business as Zavor) July 12, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (West Palm Beach Division) — Case Number 9:23-cv-81025
