February 23, 2021 — Two more lawsuits have been filed against Tristar Products by people who were burned by a Power Pressure Cooker XL.
In both lawsuits, the plaintiffs claim they suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” when hot food, liquid or steam exploded out of a Power Pressure Cooker XL when they opened the lid.
Furthermore, both lawsuits accuse Tristar of falsely advertising the “safety features” on the Power Pressure Cooker XL — specifically, a lid that is supposed to lock until all of the pressure is safely released.
The plaintiffs claim that Tristar is aware of the problem because many people have reported being burned by a Power Pressure Cooker XL, and yet the company has failed to recall the pressure cooker, fix it, or warn people about the risk.
The first Power Pressure Cooker XL Lawsuit was filed by a woman from Florida named Lynn H., who was burned on March 16, 2019 when she opened the lid on her Power Pressure Cooker XL — Filing #120538129.
The second Power Pressure Cooker XL Lawsuit was filed by a man from New Jersey named Melvin F., who was burned on March 19, 2019 when he opened the lid on his Power Pressure Cooker XL — Filing #120538914.
The lawsuits were filed against Tristar Products Inc. on January 31, 2021 in the Circuit Court of the First Judicial District for Walton County, Florida.
