According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the 6-quart express crock multi-cooker has been recalled by Sunbeam Products. The hazard reported by the CPSC is that the recalled multi-cooker can pressurize even though the lid may not be fully locked.
Because the pressure cooker can pressurize without the lid being fully secure, there is a danger of the lid detaching from the crock-pot 6-quart express. The result is a burn hazard for individuals from hot liquids and food being expelled from the cookers.
The remedy for the situation is to replace the unit. The recall involved about 814,430 units and was initiated on November 24, 2020.
The recall included the Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cooker with date codes L001 through L273 and K196 through K365. The manufacture date was from July 1, 2017, through October 1, 2018. More information about the crock multi-cookers model numbers included in the recall is available on Sunbeam’s website.
The Sunbeam crock multi-cooker recall is an example of how defective products can create a risk of traumatic injuries. Individuals may sustain various injuries from using a defective crockpot, including second and third-degree burns.
Victims may also sustain scarring and disfigurement because of the burns. Complications, including life-threatening infections, could even develop.
In some cases, victims could face weeks or months in a hospital or rehabilitation center while the burns heal. Multiple surgeries may be required to repair the damages. Some victims could still sustain permanent nerve damage or other impairments because of the severe burns caused by the defective product.
Sunbeam could be liable for damages caused by accidents involving its 6-quart express crock pot multi cooker. The victim has the burden of proving the legal elements of a product liability claim before the company can be held liable for damages.
However, because the product may be inherently dangerous because of the defect, Sunbeam may be strictly liable for damages. Strict liability does not require proving all elements of a negligence claim.
Damages that may be recovered in a product liability claim include:
The value of the personal injury claim depends on the facts of the case. Our legal team at Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP, works diligently to carefully document all your damages to maximize your injury claim’s value.
