August 2, 2023 — A woman who was burned by a Zavor Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer for selling a defective product.
The lawsuit was filed by Claudia C., a resident of Boca Raton, Florida who claims that she was burned in August 2019 by a Zavor Versa Express Pressure Cooker (Model #ZCWRA01).
According to her lawsuit, her burn injuries occurred as a result of being able to easily open the lid when there was still pressure trapped within the unit.
She claims that these injuries occurred due to the failure of the “Advanced Safety Features” that were advertised on the Zavor Pressure Cooker, such as an automatic locking handle.
Furthermore, the manufacturer used marketing materials, which claimed that the lid “won’t open while there is pressure inside the pot.”
Instead, she claims that she suffered “substantial burn injuries” when she opened the lid. Pressure in the pot allowed “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected,” according to her lawsuit.
Her lawsuit was filed against the New Jersey-based manufacturers, Market Solutions Group Inc. (d/b/a Zavor).
The Zavor Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on July 12, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (West Palm Beach Division) — Case Number 9:23-cv-81025.
