June 20, 2022 — A lawsuit has been filed by a woman from California who was burned by a Mealthy MultiPot Pressure Cooker.
The plaintiff, Melissa M., is a woman from Yucca Valley, California, who allegedly suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” when she opened the lid on her Mealthy MultiPot Pressure Cooker.
The incident occurred in August 2020 and involved a Mealthy MultiPot 2.0 (Model Number MMP-650-US).
She accuses the manufacturer, Mealthy Inc., of misleading consumers about the safety features on the Mealthy MultiPot.
Specifically, the product was advertised to “meet and exceed safety and functional standards.”
Instead, she claims that she was able to easily open the lid on her pressure cooker when it still contained a dangerous amount of pressure, heat, liquid and steam.
In her lawsuit, she alleges that she “was able to remove the lid while the pressure cooker retained pressure, causing her catastrophic bodily injuries and damages.”
Mealthy Inc. is accused of selling a defective pressure cooker, failing to fix known safety defects or issue a recall, and failing to warn consumers about the serious safety hazards of the pressure cooker.
The Mealthy MultiPot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on June 6, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California — Case Number 5:22-cv-00937.
