February 8, 2022 — A man from California who was burned by a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit was filed by Hayde G., a man who accuses SharkNinja Operating LLC of selling pressure cookers that are “unreasonably dangerous for their intended use,” the lawsuit claims.
In February 2020, he claims that he suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” due to the lid of his Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker “suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot.”
When the lid opened prematurely, the “scalding-hot contents [were] forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto his body, resulting in painful and disfiguring burn injuries.
He claims that the Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker was falsely advertised as having safety features that were supposed to prevent this type of accident. For example:
“According to the Owner’s Manual accompanying the individual unit sold, the pressure cookers are equipped with a “safety feature” that prevents the lid from unlocking until “the unit is completely depressurized.”
The Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on January 25, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California — Case Number 2:22-at-00089.
