Nearly 1 mil Sunbeam crockpots recalled for burn risks
(CNN) - There’s an important recall that could impact how you make your Thanksgiving dishes.
Sunbeam Products wants you to check your crockpot. It’s voluntarily recalling more than 900,000 of its “Six-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers.”
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it can pressurize when the lid isn’t fully locked. That could cause the lid to pop off suddenly and eject hot liquid, creating a burn risk.
So far, Sunbeam has gotten 99 reports of first to third-degree burns.
The crockpots were sold nationwide and in Canada, at stores and online, between July 2017 and now.
Owners are being asked to stop using the product as a pressure cooker while they wait for a replacement lid. The slow-cooker function is ok.
The pots will show model number SCCPPC600-V1 on a label on the bottom.
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.
