January 11, 2023 — A man from Indiana has filed a lawsuit after he was burned by an Instant Pot Duo Nova 80 Pressure Cooker.
The plaintiff, Joshua L. S., is a man from Richmond, Indiana, who alleges that he suffered serious burn injuries in January 2021 when he opened the lid on his Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
According to the lawsuit:
“Plaintiff was harmed by the defective condition of the pressure cooker which permitted the lid to detach while the unit was still pressurized, causing the contents to explode out of the pressure cooker and causing Plaintiff severe burn injuries.”
He is seeking compensation for his serious injuries, medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and other damages.
The lawsuit was filed against Instant Brands, Inc., the manufacturer of the Instant Pot. The company is accused of misleading consumers about the “safety” of the Instant Pot and concealing “serious and dangerous defects” that pose a significant risk of injury to consumers.
His Instant Pot Duo Nova Lawsuit was filed on January 3, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana (Indianapolis Division) — Case Number 1:23-cv-00005-RLY-TAB.
