Electric pressure cookers recalled over reports of electric shock

Posted on July 16, 2015 9:24 am under Product Liability

Approximately 1,000 Instant Pot “Smart” and “Smart60” electric pressure cookers are being recalled over reports of three customers being shocked while using the product, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on July 15.

The recalled products bear manufacturing dates between 12/1/2014 and 6/1/2015 and serial number ranging from 1410 to 1503, both of which can be found at the product’s base. The electric pressure cookers have a defective thermal probe in the base, which can conduct electricity and pose an electric shock hazard.

The products were sold online at Amazon.com and Instantpot.com between November 2014 and May 2015. Customers are asked to contact Instant Pot for a free replacement kit, which includes the product base and control panel.
