February 22, 2021 — Two more lawsuits have been filed by people from New Jersey and Florida who were burned by a Power Pressure Cooker XL.
In both lawsuits, Tristar Products Inc. is accused of selling pressure cookers with defective “safety” features that fail to lock the lid until it is safe to open, or prevent explosions of hot food and severe burns.
The first lawsuit was filed by Lynn H., a woman from Florida who was severely burned on March 16, 2019, as a result of being able to easily open the lid on the Power Pressure Cooker XL when it was still pressurized. Doing so caused “the scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body.
Her Power Pressure Cooker XL Lawsuit was filed on January 31, 2021 in the Circuit Court of the First Judicial District (Walton County, Florida) — Filing #120538129.
The second lawsuit was filed by Melvin F., a man from New Jersey who was severely burned on March 19, 2019, when he opened the lid on a Power Pressure Cooker XL before the pressure was completely released.
His Power Pressure Cooker XL Lawsuit was filed on January 31, 2021 in the Circuit Court of the First Judicial District (Walton County, Florida) — Filing #120538914.
