Sunbeam Products is voluntarily recalling almost a million of its Crock-Pot multi-cookers because the multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid isn’t fully locked. If the lid pops off, it may eject hot liquid that could burn the user. According to Sunbeam, the slow-cooker and sauté functions are OK to use.
There have been 99 reports of 1st to 3rd-degree burns from the use of Sunbeam’s Crock-Pot multi-cooker. Sunbeam is asking people to stop using the pressure cookers until they can obtain a free replacement lid by contacting Crock-Pot.
The recalled pressure cookers were manufactured in China and sold at Walmart, Target, and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon and other online retailers from July 2017 through November 2020. They will show model number SCCPPC600-V1 on a label on the bottom of the Crock-Pot multi-cooker.
Consumers can contact Crock-Pot at 800-323-9519 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at recall.crockpot.com for more information or to obtain a replacement lid.
