Sunbeam Products is recalling nearly one- million crockpots sold by retailers including Amazon, Target and Walmart after roughly 100 people were burned — some seriously — when the lids blew off.

 

A notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission says the recalled Crock-Pot multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked, causing the lid to suddenly come off in use, posing burn risks to consumers.

 

Sunbeam has received 119 reports of lids detaching, resulting in 99 injuries ranging in severity from first-degree to third-degree burns.

 

People who have the crockpots should call Sunbeam Products to get a replacement lid.
