Cooking Spray Accidents & PAM Burn Injury Lawsuits

Ohio Product Liability Attorney and Consumer Safety Lawyer investigating serious cooking spray accidents and PAM burn injury lawsuits for plaintiffs nationwide

Imagine you are in your kitchen, cooking dinner like any other night, when suddenly an explosion rips through the room. You are set on fire and you are severely burned. What happened? The PAM cooking spray you have used for many years just exploded, sending flames throughout the kitchen, setting you on fire.

Unfortunately, this is a real story for dozens of consumers. PAM cooking spray explosions continue to be reported, even years after the first accident. Burn injuries are reported, and product liability lawsuits have been filed. Most recently, a New York woman was almost killed when a can of PAM cooking spray overheated and blew up in her kitchen. The woman nearly burned to death, and was only spared because the fire did not hit her directly in the face.

Nevertheless, the New York woman and several others have been victims of cooking spray accidents, involving not only PAM cans but canisters of Sysco and Wellsley Farms products. Pam accident victims may be faced with severely painful recoveries, permanent injury and scarring, and emotional distress. Following PAM cooking spray accidents, injured plaintiffs are encouraged to contact an experienced consumer safety attorney and product liability lawyer. The right legal counsel can recover rightful compensation and hold the responsible parties accountable (ConAgra) for negligent consumer safety hazards.

Joe Lyon is a Cincinnati, Ohio consumer protection lawyer and product liability attorney representing injured plaintiffs nationwide in PAM cooking spray burn injury accidents. The Lyon Firm specializes in consumer safety litigation and has experience engaging large corporations following injuries and accidents.

The 37-year-old New York woman mentioned above suffered second and third-degree burn injuries to 30 percent of her body. The PAM can she used sat near the stove before it burst into flames. Similar cooking spray accidents have been reported across the country. The Lyon Firm and other consumer safety plaintiffs argue that Conagra, the maker of PAM cooking spray, has failed to sufficiently warn consumers of such safety hazards, and has also failed to properly design a cooking spray to withstand normal heat present in almost every kitchen.

Joe Lyon and plaintiffs aim to recover burn injury settlements and to warn consumers about the potential fire and burn dangers of Sysco, Wellsley Farms and PAM cooking spray. Safety experts can determine the root cause of an explosion and determine whether or not PAM cooking spray cans are defective. Conagra has decided to change the design of their canisters, though still denies that the old or new design is dangerous. Conagra argues that if used as intended, their cooking spray is safe for use in the kitchen,
