Pressure Cooker Manufacturer Pays Injury Victims After Explosion

In the suit, it was alleged that the pressure cooker was designed with shortcomings and defects which led to the catastrophic sealing/containment failure of the pressure cooker in question. It was further alleged that the pressure cooker’s valve that was intended to work as a deadbolt to prevent the lid from rotating while the unit is pressurized was defective, allowing consumers to rotate the lid using only moderate force.

Other consumers around the nation have been injured by Tristar’s defective and dangerous pressure cookers resulting in several lawsuits being filed across the country, including at least two class actions. During the trial proceedings in one such class action, Tristar agreed to provide warranty extensions and credits toward purchases of new products in a “settlement” that ostensibly covered “all U.S. persons who between March 1, 2013 and January 19, 2018, purchased power pressure cookers manufactured or marketed by Tristar.”

Wal-Mart was also named in the lawsuit for selling and placing into the stream of commerce the defective pressure cooker.

The Ammons Law Firm has a nationwide practice devoted to getting justice for people and businesses in cases against wrongdoers, manufacturers of defective products and insurance companies that wrongfully deny their policyholder’s claims.
