The electric pressure cooker seemingly blew out its seal and spewed boiling liquid and food onto the ceiling, cabinets, appliances and floor of the kitchen and the furniture and floor of an adjacent room (I measured the furthest point of splatter at 13 feet).
It was on minute 53 of a 60 minute cycle. It had water and vegetable scraps in it. The contents were below the max line. I did make sure that the seal was firmly and correctly seated before I started the machine.

I feel like the company should know that there is a dangerous problem with their product. The only reason I didn't receive burns is because I was on the other side of a wall.
