PAM Cooking Spray Lawyer & Burn Injury Settlements

Product Liability PAM Cooking Spray Lawyer and Catastrophic Burn Injury Attorney reviewing cooking spray accidents on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide

Numerous burn injury lawsuits have been filed on behalf of plaintiffs injured in cooking spray explosion accidents. The injury and product liability claims argue that cans of Sysco, Wellsley Farms and PAM cooking spray do not provide an adequate warning for potential kitchen explosion accidents, and that the canisters themselves are inherently defective in design.

Third-degree burn injuries have been reported by victims of PAM cooking spray accidents, and flames have engulfed plaintiffs in commercial and residential kitchens. The stories of survivors sound similar, each shocked that a can of cooking spray near a heat source could explode without warning. Many of the cases of PAM accidents note that the cooking spray can was sitting nearby a stove when the explosion and burn injuries were sustained.

Cooking Spray Accidents & Kitchen Burn Injury

The largest number of cooking spray explosion incidents and lawsuits involve PAM cooking spray, though cans of Sysco and Wellsley Farms cooking spray have also exploded in kitchens, leading to serious burn injuries.

Burns to the face, head, neck, torso and arms have been common in exploding PAM can accidents. Permanent nerve damage and scarring have been seen, and some burn cases have been life-threatening. ConAgra, the manufacturer of PAM cooking spray products, has denied that their product presents unnecessary dangers and argues that their current warning label is sufficient. They claim that cooking sprays can be used safely, and put the blame on injured consumers when cooking spray cans explode.

PAM Cooking Spray Lawyer & Burn Injury Lawsuits

ConAgra, Sysco and Wellsley Farms have been under pressure from the media and law firms representing injured plaintiffs following cooking spray accidents. No product liability cases have gone to trial as of yet, however, attorneys will seek compensation related to medical expense costs, pain and suffering, long-term disability, and also punitive damages for the negligence of food companies who manufacture and sell defective products that injure consumers.

Conagra has released statements that deny responsibility for their kitchen products exploding and causing severe injuries. The company claims the PAM cooking spray cans are safe if used as intended. Plaintiffs and consumer protection attorneys argue that cooking spray is meant to be used in the kitchen near heat sources and the onus is on the manufacturer to design and produce a safer product for consumers.
