Bella Cucina Pressure Cooker Lawsuit
A growing number of lawsuits have been filed by people who were severely burned when a pressure cooker exploded. Many of these incidents involve pressure cookers that were advertised as having “safety features,” such as a lock-on lid, that failed to stop explosions.
HSN Recalls Bella Cucina ‘Zip Cooker’ Pressure Cookers for Explosion Risk
In February 2007, a recall was issued for about 8,300 Bella Cucina® “Zip Cooker” Low Pressure Cookers (Model #03908) after 7 reports of explosions that burned 8 people with 1st- 2nd- and 3rd-degree burns.
What’s the Problem?
Hot food under pressure can be expelled from the pressure cooker, causing burn injuries, according to recall notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 7, 2007.
How To Identify Recalled Pressure Cookers
The name “BELLA CUCINA” and “Model No: 03908” are printed on the bottom of the pot, as well as “UL Listed Pressure Cooker.”
The recalled Bella Cucina “Zip Cooker” Low Pressure Cooker was imported by Kirby & Allen (North Brunswick, New Jersey) and sold on HSN TV network from February 2003 to June 2004 for about $70.
What Should I Do?
