South Dakota Woman Alleges Severe Burns from Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Explosion
August 6, 2018 – A woman from South Dakota who says she was sprayed with scalding chili due to a defective lid lock on her Cuisinart pressure cooker has filed a proposed class action in Connecticut federal court, according to Law360. Plaintiff Shelly Wicklund alleges in the suit that she was burned by an explosion of food after she opened the lid of her pressurized CPC-600 series Cuisinart pressure cooker, because of defects in a lid-locking mechanism that the manufacturer claimed would make such an accident impossible.

About Class Action Lawsuits
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Cuisinart pressure cooker class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of people who suffered extreme burns, skin damage, and other injuries related to an exploding or malfunctioning Cuisinart pressure cooker.
In this type of litigation, a class action suit can be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Cuisinart- lawsuits on their behalf.
