Exploding cooking oil spray injuries
Injuries associated with PAM and other cooking oil sprays include blindness, full and partial burns to the face, arms, hands, neck and other areas, extreme pain and suffering, and even death. Some of the exploding cooking spray incidents that have occurred nationwide include:
- Connecticut – a woman suffered first-, second-, and third-degree burns to her face, arm, right hand, chest, leg, and foot after a can of PAM far from where she was cooking exploded and shot flames across her counter and all over her body.
- Pennsylvania – a woman suffered severe burns to her hands and face after a cooking spray can fell into a pan while she was cooking and spewed hot grease when it exploded.
- Massachusetts – a Wicked Tuna chef suffered third-degree burns when cooking spray exploded and shot flames and fluids over his arms, chest, and legs.
- Ohio – a woman remembered “putting the fork in a pan” when a can explosion occurred and that she was “on fire” with severe burns on her face, arms, and chest.
Despite these devastating accidents, PAM and other dangerous cooking sprays remain on the market, and many consumers are unaware of their dangers.
Product liability lawsuits against ConAgra
Makers of PAM cooking spray and other cooking oil spray that are supposed to be safe but violate state and federal consumer protection laws are subject to product liability lawsuits for their defective containers and failure to warn consumers adequately about their dangers. As a result, several cases have been filed against ConAgra seeking compensation for injuries and punitive damages meant to punish the manufacturer and pressure it to make safer cans with better warnings before more people become seriously injured.
People who have suffered burns and impact injuries have received awards for:
- injury treatments and rehabilitation
- lost wages
- pain and suffering
- medical expenses
