Crock Pot Pressure Cookers Recalled after 99 People Suffer Burn Injuries
Sunbeam Products recalled about 943,000 Crock-Pot Express Pressure Cookers after reports that 99 people suffered from burn injuries ranging from 1st-degree to 3rd-degree burns.
There were over 119 reports of the lid detaching according to Sunbeam Products who issued this statement:
“The recalled Crock-Pot multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked. This can cause the lid to suddenly detach while the product is in use, posing burn risks to consumers from hot food and liquids ejected from the product.”
The recall includes Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express Multi-Cookers (Model Number SCCPPC600-V1) which can be found printed on the bottom of the Crock-Pot.
The Crock-Pots were sold from July of 2017 through November of 2020, at Walmart, Target and other online retailers for $70-$100.
