February 25, 2022 — A woman who was burned by an exploding Oster Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against Sunbeam Products and CVS.
The lawsuit was filed by Germania M., a woman from Miami, Florida who alleges that she was using her Oster Pressure Cooker normally on January 2, 2020, when it “suddenly and without warning… malfunctioned and the lid top exploded off.”
The explosion of “scalding hot contents” burned her face, chest and arms. She alleges that she suffered “serious and permanent burn injuries, excruciating pain, suffering, scarring and bodily harm,” according to the lawsuit.
She accuses CVS and Sunbeam Products of selling a pressure cooker that is “defective and unreasonably dangerous.”
The case joins a growing number of other pressure cooker lawsuits filed in recent years, including lawsuits involving Crock-Pot, Tristar Power Pressure Cooker XL, Instant Pot, Ninja Foodi, and more.
Her lawsuit was filed against Sunbeam Products Inc. and CVS Pharmacy Inc. on February 15, 2022 in the Circuit Court of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit (Miami-Dade County, Florida) — Filing # 143984567.
