December 15, 2020 — A woman who was burned by food that exploded out of her Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, NuWave LLC.
The lawsuit was filed by Ms. Tiffany B., a woman from Indiana who was severely burned by her NuWave Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker.
Tiffany was injured on December 10, 2018, while using the pressure cooker to make food. She suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” to her stomach and legs when she opened the lid.
According to the lawsuit, the scalding-hot contents of the pressure cooker were forcefully ejected onto her body when she was ably to open the lid when the pressure cooker was still under pressure.
“The incident occurred as a result of the failure of the pressure cooker’s supposed Sure-Lock® Safety System, which purports to keep the consumer safe while using the pressure cooker.”
The lawsuit also accuses NuWave of failing to redesign the pressure cooker, despite the existence of safer alternative designs.
The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit (PDF) was filed on November 16, 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case No. 1:20-cv-6784.
