The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling almost 100,000 Crock-Pots due to a burn risk (CPSC).
When the lid isn't secured, the 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers may pressurise, ejecting food and liquids.
119 lid detachments and 99 first- to third-degree burns have been reported.
The $70 to $100 Crock-Pot was offered at major supermarkets in the U.S. and Canada between July 2017 and November 2020.
Sunbeam Products Inc. manufactured them in China from July 2017 until October 2018.
The recall notice warns users against using the Crock-Pot in pressure cooker mode. Sautéing and slow cooking are safe.
CPSC's recall notification states consumers can contact Crock-Pot for a free replacement lid.
"Consumers who continue using the multi-cooker in pressure cooker mode while waiting for the new lid should align the lid's arrow with the lock sign on the base."
The recalled Crock-Pot is SCCPPC600-V1. K196JN-K365JN, L001JN-L273JN are date codes. This is on a plug prong and the Crock Pots base.
