The recalled crock-pot multi-cookers can pressurize when the lid isn’t 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 shooting out of the multi-cooker.
Sunbeam Products has received 119 reports of lid detachment, resulting in 99 burn injuries ranging from first-degree to third-degree burns.
This recall involves crock-pot 6-quart express crock multi-cookers, model number SCCPPC600-V. The model number is shown on label on bottom of unit.
The multi-cookers were manufactured between July 1, 2017, and October 1, 2018, with date codes K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN. The date code is engraved on one of the prongs of the electrical plug and on the bottom of the base.
The Sunbeam multi-cookers were sold at Walmart, Target, and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon and other online retailers from July 2017 through November 2020. The price was between $70 to $100.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled crock-pot in pressure cooker mode, but may continue to use it for slow cooking and sautéing, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Commission advise. They should contact Crock-Pot immediately to get a free replacement lid.
If consumers continue using the multi-cooker in pressure cooker mode while waiting for the replacement lid, they should be sure the lid is securely turned to the fully locked position by aligning the arrow on the lid with the lock symbol on the base.
