March 3, 2023 — A lawsuit has been filed against SharkNinja LLC by a woman who was burned by a Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker.
The plaintiff, Gwendolyn P., is a resident of Harris County, Texas, who alleges that her Ninja Foodi 9-in-1 Multi-Cooker (Model Number OP302) is “defective and unreasonably dangerous.”
The multi-cooker has many features, including a pressure cooker, air fryer, broiler, steamer, and more.
Unfortunately, the lawsuit claims that unsuspecting consumers may be able to open the lid when there is still a dangerous amount of pressure inside.
She alleges that she was using her Ninja Foodi as a pressure cooker when she needed to release the pressure to add an ingredient.
When the pressure was releasing, “the lid came open and liquid exploded out of the pressure cooker, causing Plaintiff severe burns,” she claims.
In her lawsuit, she accuses SharkNinja of failing to adequately warn consumers about the safety risks of the lid opening when there is still pressure inside the unit.
She is seeking damages in excess of $75,000 for her economic and non-economic losses, including physical and mental pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
Her lawsuit was filed on February 20, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas (Galveston Division) — Case Number 3:23-cv-00053.
