Check your Crock Pots! In a safety alert shared from Whystle, Sunbeam Products is recalling Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers because they can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked, which can cause the lid to detach and eject hot food and liquids.
Affected crock pots have Model Number SCCPPC600-V1 on the label on the bottom of the unit and were manufactured between Jul. 1, 2017 and Oct. 1, 2018. They bear date codes K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN, which is engraved on one of the prongs of the electrical plug and on the bottom of the base.
