Update: Texas Woman Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Makers of Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker
August 23, 2017 - A woman from Texas who claims she was severely burned by a defective Wolfgang Puck Automatic Rapid Pressure Cooker has filed a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers. Plaintiff Tabitha W. claims she was using the appliance as directed when it exploded at the end of its cooking cycle, causing second and third degree burns after boiling gumbo shot onto her skin.
What’s the Problem?
August 7, 2017 - Pressure cookers affected by the recall may have a defective locking mechanism which causes the lid to detach while cooking, according to Aldi.
“If this happens, there is a risk of scalding to the user,” the company said. “ALDI takes product quality and safety very seriously, and wish to advise all customers of a recall.”
Recalled Crofton pressure cookers can be identified by the year “2017” printed on the base plate. No other pressure cooker models are affected by this recall, according to Aldi.
The cookers were supplied by H&H Asia Ltd, and sold in Aldi stores across the U.S. and overseas between June 28 and July 21, 2017. If you purchased one, stop using it and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
To date, no burn injuries or other incidents have been reported, Aldi said.
Power Pressure Cooker Settlement
A class action settlement is now providing owners of allegedly defective Tristar power pressure cookers with warranty extensions and credits toward purchases of new products. However, if you or someone you know has been injured by one of these appliances, you need to opt out of this class action settlement now and contact our law firm immediately. The settlement does not provide compensation for your injuries, and if you fail to opt-out by June 4, 2018, you may lose your eligibility to pursue compensation seeking damages.
