A Prestige pressure cooker has been recalled after it was found that a fault with the product could lead to the user being scalded.
The recall relates to Meyer Group’s Prestige 6 litre stainless steel Smart Plus cooker, model number 57050. Made in India, it has a retail price of around £80.
In the event of a blockage in the product’s pressure regulator, the rubber gasket may not release excess pressure as intended. In a small number of cases, this may present a risk of pressurised steam or food particles being released forcibly from the rim of the lid, or movement of the pressure cooker, giving rise to burning or scalding.
The product does not comply with the Pressure Equipment Directive.
Date codes of the affected products are 0401 (January 2004) to 1202 (February 2012).
