Defective Pressure Cooker Injuries
Serveral brands of recently defective pressure cookers may cause severe burns or electric shock to consumers. The defective products are sold online and in several major retail stores such as Walmart, Sam’s Club, JC Penney, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Kohls.
Tristar Power, Inc.’s “Pressure Cooker XL” is labeled as having built in safety features, but may cause pressure to build up without any means of release, causing its contents to explode onto the consumer when opened. One user suffered severe first and second degree burns on his arms, chest, and torso after opening the lid of the Pressure Cooker XL.
Additionally, In July 2015, Double Insight Co. recalled approximately 1,000 of its “Instant Pot Smart” pressure cookers in the United States. The CPSC reported that “the thermal probe in the base can conduct electricity throughout the cooker, posing a risk of electric shock.
