On Tuesday, Sunbeam recalled 942,760 Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers in the United States and Canada.
The problem, as stated in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission release: “The recalled Crock-Pot multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked. This can cause the lid to suddenly detach while the product is in use, posing burn risks to consumers from hot food and liquids ejected from the product.”
A Sunbeam based in Boca Raton knew of 119 lids that were becoming detached, “resulting in 99 burn injuries ranging in severity from first-degree to third-degree burns.”
Crockpots are supposed to be convenient for cooking, not trips to urgent care or the emergency room.
This recall covers Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers, Model No. SCCPPC600-V1, with date codes K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN. You can find the date code on the bottom of the base or on one of the electrical plug prongs.
