What’s the Problem?
Consumers have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of pressure cookers for selling allegedly defective products that can explode without warning, spewing hot foods and scalding liquids on people nearby. In dozens of cases submitted to SaferProducts.gov, consumers have described incidents in which the safety mechanisms built into pressure cookers fail, leading to severe burn injuries, many of which require hospitalization, costly medical treatment and lost time at work.

Ninja Blender Recall
In Nov. 2015, about 1.2 million Ninja blenders were recalled in the U.S. and Canada after SharkNinja received at least 53 reports of lacerations, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). The agency said that the blender “poses a laceration risk if consumers pour or invert the pitcher after removing the lid while the loose stacked blade assembly is still inside the pitcher.”
