Crock Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit

Crock Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit

A woman who was burned by an exploding Crock-Pot Electric Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturers, Sunbeam Products and Newell Brands.

The woman claims that she used the pressure cooker according to the instructions. Even so, it exploded boiling-hot food due to a failure of the supposed “safety features,” which she claims are defective.

The lawsuit was filed on January 31 in the Circuit Court for Palm Beach County, Florida — In RE: Botello v. Sunbeam Products, Inc. and Newell Brands, Inc.Filing # 102592884.

On January 7, Sunbeam Products was hit with another class action lawsuit by Kimberly R., a woman who was burned after her Crock-Pot Express Pressure Cooker exploded hot food on her body.

Lawsuits accuse Sunbeam Products of selling a defective pressure cooker. The manufacturer is also accused of misleading consumers by advertising “safety features” that do not actually prevent explosions.

In many cases, consumers were burned when they were able to easily twist open the lid while the pot contained a dangerous amount of pressure, resulting in an explosion of boiling-hot food and liquid.
