Tristar Products is the manufacturer of the popular Power Pressure Cooker XL, a pressure cooker that is alleged to have one or more defects that permit the lid to be opened even while pressure remains inside the cooker. This can (and indeed, has been alleged to) result in hot liquids and steam erupting from the cooker and causing serious burns and other injuries. The class action lawsuit was brought against Tristar Products on behalf of millions of individuals who purchased these defective and potentially dangerous pressure cookers.
Under the terms of the proposed settlement, however, millions of individuals would be left in a terribly unfair position. While the attorneys representing the class members would receive millions of dollars for their fees, most of the class members themselves would receive no compensation at all under the terms of the settlement. Those that do receive “compensation” would receive a discount coupon toward the purchase of another Tristar Products pressure cooker.
What is most troubling about the settlement agreement is that, if permitted to go through, millions of class members who may have been hurt by their Power Pressure Cooker XL pressure cookers during an explosion event will lose their right to bring a separate lawsuit against for their medical bills and other expenses they may have incurred as the result of an explosion injury.
