February 22, 2023 — A mother from Texas who says her daughter was seriously burned by a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, SharkNinja Operating LLC.
The mother, Tammy M., is a resident of Texas who alleges that the lid blew off a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker when her daughter was using it, resulting in an explosion of scalding-hot food that burned the girl.
Her lawsuit states:
“The pressure cooker’s lid suddenly blew off the pot in an explosive manner. The contents of the pressure cooker were forcefully ejected out of the pot and onto Plaintiff, causing severe, disfiguring burns.”
In her lawsuit, she accuses SharkNinja of selling “unreasonably dangerous” pressure cookers that are defective because the lid can be rotated and opened while the unit is still pressurized.
Furthermore, she claims that the company misleads consumers by claiming that the Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker has “14 safety features,” including a lid that is supposed to lock until the unit has been “completely depressurized.”
She is seeking damages and financial compensation for her daughter’s pain and suffer, physical pain and mental anguish, medical bills, decreased quality of life, and more.
Her lawsuit was filed against SharkNinja Operating LLC on February 14, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas (Houston Division) — Case Number 4:23-cv-00535.
