Illinois Woman Files Lawsuit After Pressure Cooker Exploded
A lawsuit has been filed by a woman who was severely burned by a Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cooker she bought from QVC.
The lawsuit was filed by Theresa S., a woman from Illinois who was injured by a Cook’s Essentials 6-Quart Electric Cooker (Model Number CEPC6005) on July 2, 2019.
Her injuries occurred due to the “pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker's pot,” according to the lawsuit. The explosion caused its “scalding-hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto the Plaintiff.”
The consumer claims that the appliance is defective because the lid can be removed with normal force while the unit remains pressurized, despite the appearance that all of the pressure has been released.
Her lawsuit was filed against IC Marks Inc. and QVC Inc. (doing business as Cook’s Essentials) on June 29, 2021 in the US. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1-21-CV-03469.
