March 21, 2022 — A woman from Georgia who was seriously burned by a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit was filed by Kiah R., a woman from McDonough, Georgia, who was injured by a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker that was manufactured by SharkNinja Operating LLC.
On or about March 5, 2020, she allegedly suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” as a result of the pressure cooker’s lid “suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot.”
The explosion caused “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” onto her body, the lawsuit states.
She incurred significant and painful injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain, mental anguish, and diminished enjoyment of life, according to the lawsuit.
She accuses SharkNinja Operating of selling a defective pressure cooker that was supposed to have a “safety feature” to prevent the lid from unlocking until the unit was completely depressurized
The Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed against SharkNinja Operating LLC on February 28, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia (Atlanta Division) — Case 1:22-cv-00841-JPB.
