March 31, 2021 — NuWave LLC has been hit by yet another lawsuit after a person was burned by a Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker.
The lawsuit was filed by Alex B., a man from Michigan who was burned on April 8, 2019 when he opened the lid on his NuWave Nutri-Pot 6-Quart Digital Pressure Cooker.
He accuses NuWave of selling pressure cookers with defective safety features that do not prevent a person from opening the lid when there is still a dangerous amount of pressure inside the Nutri-Pot.
Specifically, he claims that the Nutri-Pot was advertised to contain a “Sure-Lock® Safety System,” but instead, it failed to lock the lid until all of the pressure was released, resulting in his injuries.
As soon as he opened the lid, pressure in the pot allowed “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto his body, resulting in severe burn injuries.
The lawsuit also accuses NuWave of failing to warn consumers about the potential risk, redesign the Nutri-Pot, or issue a safety recall.
The Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed against NuWave LLC on March 15, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1:21-cv-01415.
