Breville Recalls Thousands of Pressure Cookers
December 22, 2015,
WASHINGTON—Breville has issued a recall of 35,600 of its Fast Slow Cookers due to a faulty sealing gasket, according to a statement from the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.
The Breville Fast Slow Cooker
The statement said the sealing gasket could be incorrectly inserted upside down on the lid, which can allow the unexpected release of built-up pressure. This poses a risk of burns to the user or anyone nearby. Pressure cookers with model number BPR600XL and batch numbers between 1235 and 1529 are part of this recall.
CPSC said Breville has received five reports of steam or hot contents escaping from the pressure cooker, resulting in five reports of burns, including second-degree burns to the hands, arms or stomach.
CPSC directed consumers to stop using the recalled pressure cookers and contact Breville for a replacement sealing gasket and updated instructions.
