Tabletops Unlimited has been hit with another lawsuit involving people who were burned when their Philippe Richard pressure cooker exploded.
The lawsuit was filed by Anthony and Stacy H., a married couple from Indiana who were burned when their pressure cooker exploded on April 2, 2018.
According to the lawsuit, they suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” as a result of the pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly blowing off the pot while they were using it normally.
The explosion allowed the scalding-hot food in the pressure cooker to be forcefully ejected and onto the plaintiffs. They both suffered “severe and disfiguring burns” that required medical attention.
The plaintiffs are seeking financial compensation for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of consortium, and more.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed on March 20, 2020 in the Superior Court of California for the County of Los Angeles — Case Number 20STCV11344.
