00:04
if you’re on a pressure cooker
00:06
i i think you need to be concerned
00:07
whether you have one of the products
00:09
that may
00:10
be defective there’s a company that made
00:13
a pressure cooker
00:14
called tristar who had a class action
00:18
filed against them in ohio that
00:20
class action has been settled but the
00:23
claim was
00:24
that there were many consumers out there
00:25
who had defective pressure cookers
00:28
and didn’t know it and i believe as a
00:30
result of the class action they had the
00:32
opportunity to get a newer product that
00:35
may not have the same defect that the
00:37
older products had
00:39
the pressure cooker that i most recently
00:42
have done a case on was the instant pot
00:45
a very
00:45
popular name very popular brand
00:49
and on the instant pot you can tell when
00:51
it was made
00:52
by looking at the label on the back of
00:56
the pot
00:57
and there’s a what’s called a date code
01:00
there
01:01
and if your pressure cooker was made in
01:03
the year 2016 or earlier
01:07
i would have some concern because the
01:10
many of the
01:11
claims that i have seen filed around the
01:13
country are
01:14
from instant pots that were made before
01:16
the year 2017.
01:19
my advice to consumers is that if you
01:22
have an
01:23
older pressure cooker replace it buy a
01:25
new one the
01:26
the newer ones hopefully are products
01:29
that have incorporated
01:31
updated designs updated safety features
01:33
to help prevent them from opening under
01:38
pressure
