June 19, 2020 — A woman who was severely burned by an exploding Nutri-Pot pressure cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, NuWave LLC.
The lawsuit was filed by Cynthia W., a woman from Tennessee who suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” on June 22, 2019 due to an exploding Nutri-Pot.
The explosion involved a NuWave Nutri-Pot 6-Quart Digital Pressure Cooker (Model Number 33101).
Cynthia claims the Nutri-Pot is defective because its “Sure-Lock® Safety System” failed to lock the lid and prevent her from opening it when there was still a dangerous amount of pressure inside the pot.
Opening the lid caused the “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected” out of the pressure cooker and onto her body.
She is seeking compensation for painful injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, and diminished enjoyment of life.
NuWave is accused of putting profits over safety by continuing to sell the pressure cooker, failing to issue a recall and failing to warn consumers of the serious risks.
The Nutri-Pot Lawsuit (PDF) was filed on May 27, 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case No. 1:20-cv-03124.
