Crock-Pot Multi Cooker Recalled Due to Burn Hazard
The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall recently on Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers due to a burn hazard.
CPSC announced the recall on Nov. 24.
This particular Crock Pot item was sold at Walmart, Target, and other retail stores nationwide. It was also sold through Amazon.com. The Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers were sold between July 2017 and November 2020 for between $70-100.
It’s being recalled due to a hazard that’s already resulted in 99 injuries, including first- and third-degree burns.
CPSC says this Crock-Pot multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid isn’t fully locked. When this happens, the lid can become detached suddenly. Hot food and liquids inside can come spraying out of the multi-cooker, putting anyone nearby at risk.
If this device isn’t being used for pressure cooking, it can still be safely used for slow cooking and sauteeing. Crock-Pot is offering consumers a free replacement lid. While owners are waiting for that lid, they should make sure the lid is turned to the fully locked position.
