June 28, 2022 — A woman from Wisconsin who alleges that she was burned by a Bella pressure cooker has filed a lawsuit.
The lawsuit was filed against Sensio by Mialisa M., a woman from River Falls, Wisconsin, who claims that she was seriously burned by a defective Bella 6-Quart 10-in-1 Multicooker (Model #M-60B23G).
She claims that in July 2019, she was able to easily open the lid on her Bella Pressure Cooker when it contained a dangerous amount of pressure, heat, steam and liquid.
As soon as she opened the lid, the pressure inside the unit caused “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and all over her body, resulting in severe burn injuries.
She claims that Sensio misled her about the pressure cooker’s safety features, such as a “safety locking lid,” which was advertised with this claim: “The lid will not come off when it is in the LOCK position.”
Instead, she claims that the lid failed to lock as advertised. She accuses Sensio of misleading consumers, failing to warn about serious safety hazards, and failing to recall a defective product.
The Bella Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on June 20, 2022 against Sensio Inc. (doing business as Bella) in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin — Case Number 3:22-cv-00340.
