Update: Texas Woman Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Makers of Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker
August 23, 2017 – A woman from Texas who claims she was severely burned by a defective Wolfgang Puck Automatic Rapid Pressure Cooker has filed a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers. Plaintiff Tabitha W. claims she was using the appliance as directed when it exploded at the end of its cooking cycle, causing second and third degree burns after boiling gumbo shot onto her skin.
What’s the Problem?
August 7, 2017 – Aldi recalled the Crofton Chef’s Collection 6L stainless steel pressure cooker (50073) after it was found that some of the cookers’ lid locking mechanisms may be defective, which could cause the lid to detach when cooking. If this happens, there is risk of scalding the user, Aldi said.
Affected pressure cookers can be identified by the year “2017” embossed on the base plate. Other Aldi Crofton pressure cooker models are not affected by this recall. The cookers were manufactured by H&H Asia Ltd, and sold in Aldi stores from June 28 to July 21, 2017.
If you purchased an Aldi pressure cooker included in this recall, you should stop using it immediately and return it to the nearest Aldi store for a full refund.
To date, no injuries or other incidents have been associated with the recall, according to Aldi.
