ALDI Recalls Crofton Pressure Cookers for Injury RiskAugust 7, 2017 — ALDI stores recalled certain Crofton Chef’s Collection Pressure Cookers because the lid may unlock and open during cooking, which could seriously burn anyone nearby.

The recall involves Crofton Chef’s Collection 6L Stainless Steel Pressure Cookers with Product Code #50073. The pressure cookers were sold at ALDI stores in Australia between June 28, 2017 and July 21, 2017. The pressure cookers were also sold in the United States.

The affected products were supplied by H&H Asia Ltd. and they can be identified by the year embossed on the base plate — “2017.” Other Crofton pressure cooker models are not affected by this recall.

According to the recall information notice in Australia:

In some cases the lid locking mechanism may be defective causing the lid to detach when cooking. If this happens, there is a risk of scalding to the user.”

Pressure cookers use hot steam to cook food faster and more efficiently. During cooking, the lid is locked onto the pot and pressure increases. If the lid opens, the top can blow off with explosive force. Boiling-hot steam and sticky food will spray out all over the kitchen — and if it lands on a person, it will cause severe burn injuries or scalds.

ALDI is asking consumers to immediately stop using the pressure cookers and return it to the nearest ALDI store for a full refund.
