July 7, 2021 — A woman from Illinois who was burned by a Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against QVC and IC Marks Inc.
The lawsuit was filed by Theresa Ann S., a woman who purchased a new Cook’s Essentials 6-Quart Electric Pressure Cooker (Model Number CEPC6005) from the QVC Home Shopping TV Channel.
Tragically, she was severely burned when the pressure cooker exploded on July 2, 2019.
According to the lawsuit, her injuries occurred due to the “pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot.”
Furthermore, she was able to easily twist open the lid with normal force when the pressure cooker was still pressurized.
Opening the lid caused its “scalding-hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto the Plaintiff,” according to the complaint.
The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on June 29, 2021 against IC Marks Inc. and QVC Inc. (d/b/a Cook’s Essentials) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1-21-CV-03469.
