December 9, 2021 — A woman who was severely burned by a Farberware Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit was filed by Gabrielle M., a woman from Shreveport, Louisiana, who claims she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” on November 17, 2020, when the lid exploded off her Farberware 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker.
According to the lawsuit, the pressure cooker’s lid “suddenly and unexpectedly exploded off the pressure cooker’s pot during the normal, directed use of the pressure cooker, allowing its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker.”
As a result, she has suffered significant and painful injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, physical and mental pain and suffering, and diminished enjoyment of life.
Her lawsuit accuses Farberware of intentionally concealing defects in the pressure cooker and failing to warn consumers about the risk. She claims that the pressure cooker is “unreasonably dangerous” and its defects resulted in “significant and painful bodily injuries.”
The lawsuit was filed against Farberware Licensing Company LLC (doing business as Farberware Cookerware)
The Faberware Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on November 10, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana (Shreveport Division) — Case Number 5:21-cv-03926-SMH-MLH.
