August 23, 2021 — A woman from Denver, Colorado has filed a lawsuit after suffering horrific burn injuries when her now-recalled Crock-Pot Pressure Cooker exploded.
The lawsuit was filed by Georgina B., who said she was trying to make beans in her Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker in June 2019.
She had no idea that her pressure cooker was defective until the lid suddenly exploded off the pot and flew across her kitchen, spraying extremely hot liquid all over her body.
She was hospitalized with severe 2nd- and 3rd-degree burns on her face, arms, and chest. Over the past year, she has required extensive surgeries to transplant 5-square-feet of cadaver skin grafts on the burned areas of her body, according to the lawsuit.
Despite her serious injuries — and many similar incidents — the manufacturer, Sunbeam Products, failed to issue a recall for more than a year.
By the time the Crock-Pot Pressure Cooker was finally recalled in November 2020, Sunbeam Products said it had 119 reports of the lid detaching and 99 burn injuries.
