·2 min read

The lawsuit alleges Groupe SEB America, Inc., the manufacturer of the Mirro Pressure Cooker, has misrepresented the safety of its pressure cookers.

The firm represents over 300 clients who have been severely burned by exploding pressure cookers designed and sold by numerous manufacturers.

According to the Complaint, the incident occurred as a result of the failure of the pressure cooker's touted "special features, "which purport to "safely and efficiently exhaust pressure," and which are supposed to prevent the unit from both building pressure if the lid is not closed properly and from being opened if the unit is under pressure. However, the Plaintiff alleges that the Mirro pressure cooker contains defects which allow unsuspecting consumers to remove the lid while the cooker is still under pressure causing the scalding hot contents to be projected from the unit.
