January 4, 2023 — A woman who was burned by a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit was filed in Colorado by Ashley D., a woman who alleges that she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” on January 26, 2021 when the lid “suddenly and unexpectedly blew off the pot in an explosive manner.”
The explosion caused the “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body.
The accident resulted in disfiguring burns, painful bodily injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, diminished enjoyment of life, and other damages, according to her lawsuit.
She accuses the manufacturer, SharkNinja, of selling an “unreasonably dangerous” pressure cooker failing to warn consumers about the serious safety risks of using the pressure cooker.
Specifically, she claims that the Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker is defective because the lid can open when it is pressurized, which can result in an explosion of hot food, liquid, and steam.
The Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed against SharkNinja Operating LLC on December 23, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado — Case Number 1:22-cv-03310.
