September 24, 2021 — NuWave LLC has been hit by a lawsuit from a woman who claims she was severely burned by a Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker.
The lawsuit was filed by Lindsie R., a woman from Irons, Michigan, who purchased a new NuWave Nutri-Pot 6Q Digital Pressure Cooker (Model Number 33101) in November 2017.
On August 20, 2021, she alleges that she was using the pressure cooker normally when she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” when she was able to open the lid before it was safe to do so.
She blames her injuries on a defective safety feature — the “Sure-Lock® Safety System” — which was advertised to lock the lid and prevent a user from opening it until all of the pressure was released.
Instead, she claims she was able to easily twist open the lid on the Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker, which caused its “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and all over her body.
The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on August 29, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan — Case Number 2:21-cv-00195.
