Consumer safety attorney and product liability lawyer investigates the most dangerous kitchen appliances in homes that may lead to severe burn injury
Most consumers don’t think about all the potentially dangerous kitchen appliances in their homes, yet thousands of Americans are injured by defective kitchen products each year. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), major home appliances cause more than 150,000 residential fires each year, resulting in property damage, serious burn injuries and deaths.
When most people think about kitchen accidents, they may remember the last time they cut themselves with a knife or burned themselves on the stove. But kitchen dangers go far beyond common sense or clumsy mistakes. Defective kitchen products like multi cookers, pressure cookers, food processors, cooking sprays and pot holders are the cause of many burn injuries for consumers.
Consumer safety advocates work hard to force recalls of unsafe kitchen products, but that is more difficult that it appears. Most companies will only recall defective products after kitchen accidents and burn injuries occur. But if you have suffered, contact a product liability attorney to investigate.
