If you usually use a Crock-Pot pressure cooker to make holiday meals, beware: the Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers by Sunbeam Products are getting recalled.
Per the Customer Product Safety Commission, almost one million units are being recalled and need to be replaced. They write, “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.”
Any customer who has this particular model is encouraged to stop using it as a pressure cooker and contact Crock-Pot for a free replacement lid.
So far, there have been 119 reports of lid detachment. Ninety-nine of those lead to first-degree to third-degree burns. These particular Crock-Pots were sold at places like Walmart, Target, and Amazon from July 2017 through November 2020. They range in price between $70 to $100.
The model numbers for the Crock-Pots are SCCPPC600-V1, and can be found on the label on the bottom of the unit. The date codes for this product are K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN. The date codes can be found on the prongs of the electrical plug and also at the bases bottom.
