Woman From Louisiana Files Instant Pot Lawsuit

Instand Pot LawsuitIn March 2020, a woman from Louisiana filed a lawsuit after she was severely burned by an exploding Instant Pot pressure cooker.

The lawsuit was filed by Latoya K., a woman who bought a new Instant Pot (Model #IP-DUO60 V3) in July 2018.

Less than a year later, in March 2019, she suffered 2nd-degree burns to her abdomen when her Instant Pot exploded hot food.

She claims the incident occurred because of the failure of so-called “safety mechanisms,” which were advertised to prevent explosions.

Instead, she was able to easily twist open the lid on the Instant Pot while it still contained a dangerous amount of pressure, resulting in a violent explosion of scalding-hot food all over her body.

The lawsuit (PDF) was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana on on March 13, 2020 — In RE: Latoya K. vs. Instant Brands Inc.Case Number 2:20-cv-00887-EEF-JVM.
