The pressure cook had been on for approximately 1 hour, when the consumer began to turn the lid and it flew off of the pot and fell into the sink. The pressure cooker was on the counter next to the sink at the time.

The contents in the pot flew out and landed on the consumer and her 23 month old son. The consumer sustained burns to her right wrist and stomach. Her son was burned on the left side of his face, left shoulder and parts of his back.

The consumer immediately called 911 and was taken to [REDACTED] Hospital. The son was treated and released later that night.

The consumer suffered 3rd degree burns and the son suffered 2nd & 3rd degree burns.

The consumer went to a doctor approximately 2 - 3 days after the incident. She had infections and was placed on antibiotics.

The consumer has never had any problems with the pot before. She estimates that it was used approximately 2 - 3 times per month, prior to the incident.

The consumer contacted an attorney and was advised to call CPSC.
