April 12, 2023 — A lawsuit has been filed against Sunbeam Products by a woman who was burned by a Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker.
The plaintiff, Melanie P., is a woman from Charleston, South Carolina who claims that she was burned on March 20, 2020, while using the pressure cooker function of her multi-cooker.
She specifically alleges that she was injured by a defective Crock-Pot Multi-Cooker (Model Number SCCPPC400-DS). This model is also known as the Crock-Pot 4-Quart Multi-Use MINI Express Crock Programmable Slow Cooker and Pressure Cooker.
The multi-cooker is similar to the Crock-Pot Pressure Cooker (Model SCCPPC600-V1) that was recalled in November 2020 after at least 99 people reported burn injuries when the lid detached.
In her lawsuit, she blames her injuries on the pressure cooker’s “weak interlock system, which created a vacuum and caused the lid to cling to the inner pot…allowing its scalding hot contents to spill out of the pressure cooker and onto Plaintiff when the vacuum seal released.”
She is seeking damages for her serious bodily injuries, medical expenses, physical pain and mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and other damages.
Her lawsuit was filed on March 20, 2023 in the Circuit Court of the Fifteenth Judicial District (Palm Beach County, Florida) — Filing #169086806.
