South Dakota Woman Alleges Severe Burns from Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Explosion
August 6, 2018 – A woman from South Dakota who says she was sprayed with scalding chili due to a defective lid lock on her Cuisinart pressure cooker has filed a proposed class action in Connecticut federal court, according to Law360. Plaintiff Shelly Wicklund alleges in the suit that she was burned by an explosion of food after she opened the lid of her pressurized CPC-600 series Cuisinart pressure cooker, because of defects in a lid-locking mechanism that the manufacturer claimed would make such an accident impossible.
