August 12, 2022 — Tabletops Unlimited has been sued by a woman from Arkansas who claims that she was severely burned by a Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker.
The plaintiff, India S., is a woman from Wynne, Arkansas, who claims that her Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker (Model Number YPC-1301) was dangerously defective for its intended use.
According to the lawsuit, on November 28, 2016, she was burned as a result of the “pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot.”
The built-up pressure, heat and steam inside the pressure cooker caused the “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto Plaintiff,” the complaint states.
She accuses Tabletops Unlimited of misleading consumers about the safety of the Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker that burned her.
Specifically, she claims that the safety features fail to perform as intended, including the “auto-lock system” and “triple safety features.”
She is seeking compensation for her medical treatment, future medical care, and other expenses as a result of the severe burns she suffered from the incident.
The Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on August 1, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas (Northern Division) — Case 3:22-cv-00198-KGB.
