October 10, 2023 — SharkNinja Operating LLC has been sued by a woman who was burned when her Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker exploded without warning.
The lawsuit was filed by Christina M., a woman from El Cajon, California, who claims that she was severely burned when the lid suddenly exploded off of her Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker.
Her lawsuit alleges that she sustained “disfiguring burns” due to the “pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot.”
She claims that she was using the pressure cooker to make food when the lid blew off, which allowed “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto Plaintiff.”
SharkNinja Operating LLC is accused of selling “unreasonably dangerous” pressure cookers that are defective “because the lid can be rotated and opened while the unit remains pressurized.”
Her lawsuit joins hundreds of similar lawsuits that have been filed nationwide by people who were burned by pressure cookers. Many of these lawsuits involve people with severe, disfiguring burn injuries.
The lawsuit was filed on August 16, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California — Case 3:23-cv-01503-AJB-KSC.
