Pressure Cooker Injuries
Consumers in multiple states have reported suffering second- and third-degree burns after explosions of Pressure Cooker appliances in which the top of the unit flies off during operation, spewing steam and hot liquid on persons standing near the appliance. Power Pressure Cookers are often "Seen on Tv" products and sold to consumers at retail giants including Target, Wal-Mart and Bed Bath & Beyond.
Consumers in multiple states have reported suffering second- and third-degree pressure cooker injuries. This happens when the top of the unit flies off during operation, spewing steam and hot liquid dangerously. Power Pressure Cookers are often “Seen on Tv” products and sold to consumers at retail giants everywhere.
In promotional videos, companies touts that the lid of the “As Seen on TV” pressure cooker is unremovable. The lid should not move until internal pressure has dissipated and it is safe for removal. Unfortunately, for consumers in states including Georgia, Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania, the reality has been far different. For example, a Georgia woman suffered burns while making a chicken stock for Easter dinner in March 2016. With no warning or input from her, the top blew off her Power Pressure Cooker XL, resulting in severe burns to her torso. They have also linked Power Pressure Cooker explosions to burn injuries to children who were near an exploding pressure cooker, including a nine-month-old baby in Texas and a 14-year-old boy in Georgia.
