March 23, 2022 — A lawsuit has been filed against SharkNinja Operating LLC by a woman who claims that she was burned by a defective pressure cooker.
The plaintiff, Kiah R., is a woman from Georgia who alleges that she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” as a result of the lid blowing off of her Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker.
She blames the incident on the failure of the pressure cooker’s so-called “safety mechanisms,” which failed to lock the lid until all of the pressure was safely released.
According to the lawsuit, she was burned as a result of the lid “suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot,” which allowed “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker.”
She accuses SharkNinja Operating of putting profits over public safety by selling a defective pressure cooker with dangerous design flaws.
She is seeking compensation for her pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish, diminished enjoyment of life, and more.
The Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on February 28, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia (Atlanta Division) — Case 1:22-cv-00841-JPB.
