June 1, 2020 — A woman from Georgia filed a lawsuit after her Tristar Power Pressure Cooker XL exploded and caused severe burn injuries.
The lawsuit was filed by Quesadra G., a woman who bought the pressure cooker in March 2016 after watching several TV infomercials where Tristar advertised the Power Pressure Cooker XL.
In December 2018, she used the pressure cooker to make food for her family. At the time, she believed that the safety features on her pressure cooker would prevent it from building up pressure unless that lid was locked securely.
Despite using the pressure cooker as directed by Tristar, hot food in the pressure cooker exploded onto her body when she opened the lid.
She suffered severe, painful burns that required medical treatment. As a result, she continues to suffer from permanent scarring, skin discoloration, lack of sensation, and sensitivity, among other injuries.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia (Atlanta Division) — Case No. 1:20-cv-01430-SDG.
