December 14, 2022 — A lawsuit has been filed by a woman from Texas who claims that she was seriously burned by a defective pressure cooker.
The lawsuit was filed by Criselda C., a woman from Euless, Texas, who was burned by a Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker (Model Number YPC 2055C).
According to the lawsuit, she was using the pressure cooker to make food when “the pressure cooker’s lid unexpectedly and suddenly blew off the pot in an explosive manner.”
The hot contents of the pressure cooker were forcefully ejected out of the pot and all over her body, causing “severe, disfiguring burns” to her face, chest, arms, and legs.
She claims that Philippe Richard Pressure Cookers are “unreasonably dangerous for their intended use by consumers because the lid can be rotated and opened while the unit remains pressurized.”
The defendant is Tabletops Unlimited Inc., a California corporation that manufactures and sells Philippe Richard Pressure Cookers.
The lawsuit was filed on November 28, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California — Case Number 2:22-cv-08622.
