Aggressive, Experienced Attorneys for Recalled Pressure Cooker Burn Injury Lawsuits
As more and more reports come in of pressure cookers exploding or being able to be opened by consumers while the cooker is still pressurized despite safety features meant to prevent this from happening, manufacturers have issued recalls asking consumers to return their devices before suffering serious injuries or burns.

What to Do with a Recalled Pressure Cooker
Voluntary recalls are those initiated by the manufacturer or that occur with the manufacturer’s acquiescence and occur in cases where a dangerous defect or condition is known or thought to exist. There may or may not have been injuries reported before a voluntary recall is initiated. However, in cases of voluntary recalls many owners of recalled products are not informed of the recall and may continue to use the dangerous pressure cooker.
If you do discover that you own or are using any of these recalled pressure cookers, stop using the pressure cooker immediately! Continued use can put you and your loved ones at risk of serious injury. You should return the product in accordance with the instructions provided in the recall notice. If you have been injured by a recalled product, do not return the pressure cooker without first speaking with an attorney.
