Crock-Pot recalls nearly 1 million pressure cookers due to risk of burns

November 25th – Nearly one million Crock-Pot pressure cookers have been recalled due to the risk of potential burns.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission manufactured the Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi- from July 2017 to October 2018 and sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and other retailers nationwide. We announced a recall of Cookers in a statement on Tuesday.

“The recalled Crock-Pot multi-cooker can be pressurized when the lid is not fully locked,” CPSC said. “This can cause the lid to suddenly come off during product use, and the warm food and liquid discharged from the product can pose a risk of burns to consumers.”

Crock-Pot also acknowledged the issue in a statement on its website.

“Crock-Pot has confirmed that some 6-quart express clock multi-cooker lids can come off during use if not used according to the owner’s manual.

SunBeam Products, which owns the Crock-Pot, said it had suffered 99 burns, ranging from one to three burns, after receiving 119 reports of lid removal.

CPSC immediately stopped using the recalled Crock-Pots in pressure cooker mode and urged consumers to contact Crock-Pot for a free replacement lid.

However, the agency added that Crock-Pot can still be used for slow cooking and sautéing.
