Lawsuits against PAM cooking spray have been filed in at least 12 cases where the can exploded on unsuspecting u sers. The injuries suffered by a number of the plaintiffs were severe. In addition to burns, one person was blinded in one eye when the can of PAM exploded on them.
Johnson // Becker has a team of lawyers that work on explosion cases. For example, our law firm is also currently handling other explosion lawsuits involving pressure cookers, e-cigarettes/vape pens, hoverboards, and fidget spinners.
Why Are Cans of PAM Exploding?
The current controversy is centered around the fact that Conagra, the manufacturer of PAM, changed its design of the cans approximately three years ago. This is when the majority of the PAM explosions were reported. The company also recently changed the can design again, leading some to suspect that Conagra was attempting to design the defect out of the product.
In one of the PAM lawsuits filed, it claims that the allegedly faulty cans “were designed and manufactured so that when the can buckled and the u-shaped vents on the bottom of the canister opened, the internal contents of the canister would escape through the vents and the pressure inside the can would be reduced,” and that these cans were “10 ounces or larger, primarily sold at wholesale retail chains.” In each incident, the can had been placed on a shelf, counter, or cart near an oven or stove.
