Heads up Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker owners!
Sunbeam has issued a voluntary recall on over 940,000 Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers in the US and Canada after receiving 119 reports of lid detachment.
The reports have resulted in 99 burn injuries ranging in severity from first-degree to third-degree burns. The cookers can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked causing the lid to suddenly detach while the product is in use.
The recalled Crock-Pot multi-cookers are Model Number SCCPPC600-V1 and were sold at various retailers including Walmart, Target, Amazon, and other stores and online retailers from July 2017 through November 2020. The multi-cookers were manufactured between July 1, 2017, and October 1, 2018, with date codes K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN. The date code is engraved on one of the prongs of the electrical plug and on the bottom of the base.
Sunbeam is urging consumers to stop using the recalled Crock-Pot in pressure cooker mode, but says that you may continue to use it for slow cooking and sautéing. Consumers can contact Crock-Pot to obtain a free replacement lid. You can contact Crock-Pot at 800-323-9519 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or head over to recall.crockpot.com for more information.
