Why Was the Sunbeam Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cooker Recalled?
A Sunbeam Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express was recalled by Sunbeam Products, Inc. in conjunction with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on November 24, 2020. The lid on the Sunbeam Crock-Pot® can quickly detach from the Crock-Pot® while it is in use, thus its design allows for it to pressurize when the lid is not completely fastened. This poses a serious risk of injury and burns to consumers, as hot liquids and food may spew from the Crock-Pot®.
A description of the recalled Sunbeam Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cooker is as follows:
- Manufactured between July 1, 2017 and October 2018;
- Contains the date codes K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN (the date codes are set forth on the base of the product and on the prongs of the electrical plug); and
- Has the model # SCCPPC600-V1.
With roughly 914,430 Crock-Pot® units sold in the U.S. and about 28,330 units sold in Canada, myriad consumers have been put at risk. There have been 119 reports of Crock-Pot® lids detaching, which is associated with nearly 100 burn injuries ranging from first-degree to third-degree burns. Therefore, consumers are warned not to use the recalled Sunbeam Crock-Pot® in pressure cooker mode. A replacement lid can be obtained by contacting Sunbeam Products, Inc.
Retailers Selling the Sunbeam Crock-Pot®
The Sunbeam Crock-Pot® is sold through Amazon, Walmart, Target, and other stores. The price ranged from $70 to $100, and the product was sold from July 2017 through November 2020. For more information, you can click here to visit the CPSC website page regarding this recall.
