July 22, 2021 — A woman from Texas who was severely burned when the lid exploded off of her Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The plaintiff, Tiffany B., is a woman from Mesquite, Texas, who claims that her Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker (Model Number YPC 2055C) is unreasonably dangerous and defective.
She filed the lawsuit after suffering devastating burn injuries in an pressure cooker accident on July 20, 2019.
According to the lawsuit, her “pressure cooker’s lid unexpectedly and suddenly blew off the pot in an explosive manner.”
The sudden explosion of hot food caused “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body. As a result, she suffered “severe, disfiguring burns to … her face, chest and all four extremities.”
The lawsuit was filed against Tabletops Unlimited Inc. (TTU), the manufacturer of her Philippe Richard Pressure Cooker.
Her lawsuit accuses TTU of selling defective pressure cookers with safety features that “failed to properly function” or prevent an explosion, including a pressure regulator, safety lock and sealing ring.
The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on July 15, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California — Case 2:21-cv-05732.
