November 4, 2021 — A woman from New York has filed a lawsuit against Aldi Inc. after she was burned by a pressure cooker.
The lawsuit was filed by Tamala B., a woman from Bradford, New York, who claims that her Ambiano 9 in 1 Programmable Pressure Cooker exploded when she opened the lid.
The incident occurred on October 26, 2018 as a result of the failure of the “safety devices,” according to the lawsuit.
She claims that she was able to easily remove the lid when there was still a dangerous amount of pressure in the pot.
Opening the lid caused an explosion of “scalding hot contents,” which were “projected from the unit and into the surrounding area,” the lawsuit claims.
ALDI is accused of selling pressure cookers with unreasonably dangerous defects. Specifically, she claims that “the ALDI Ambiano Pressure Cooker is defective because unsuspecting consumers can remove the lid when the cooker is still under pressure.”
The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed against ALDI Inc. on October 25, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York — Case Number 6:21-cv-06654-FPG.
