April 12, 2021 — A lawsuit has been filed in Louisiana by a woman who was severely burned by a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker that exploded.
The lawsuit was filed by JoVanna R., a woman from Shreveport, Louisiana, who claims she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” on April 14, 2020, when her pressure cooker exploded.
She was using a Ninja® Foodi Pressure Cooker normally when the lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploded off the pot, according to the lawsuit. This caused its “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body, resulting in burn injuries.
The lawsuit claims that the Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker was advertised as having “14 Safety Features” that were supposed to prevent the pot from building up pressure if the lid was not properly closed. The lid was also supposed to lock until the pressure was released.
The manufacturer, SharkNinja, is accused of negligence for selling pressure cookers with dangerous safety defects and design flaws.
The Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on March 16, 2021 against SharkNinja Operating, LLC, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana — Case Number 5:21-cv-00694.
