May 25, 2022 — Sensio Inc. has been hit by a lawsuit after a woman was seriously burned by a Bella Pressure Cooker explosion.
The plaintiff, Ms. Edith L., is a woman from Clifton, New Jersey who alleges that she was burned by a Bella 5-Quart Pressure Cooker (Model Number JY-PC20US-5P) in June 2020.
She claims that she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” as a result of being able to twist open the lid when her pressure cooker was still pressurized.
Doing so allowed “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body.
The incident occurred as a result of the failure of the pressure cooker’s “safety valve,” a feature that was advertised to keep consumers safe.
Furthermore, she accuses the manufacturer of falsely advertising an “[e]xtremely safe and secure locking system,” which failed to actually lock the lid and prevent an explosion of hot food.
The Bella Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on May 18, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey — Case Number 2:22-cv-02888.
