Sunbeam Products is voluntarily recalling more than 900,000 of its Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers for a potential burn hazard. The recall news comes just two days before Thanksgiving.

New York (CNN Business)Sunbeam Products is voluntarily recalling more than 900,000 of its Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers for a potential burn hazard.

The problem, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is "the recalled Crock-Pot multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked. " Which they say, "can cause the lid to suddenly detach while the product is in use, posing burn risks to consumers from hot food and liquids ejected from the product. "

The recall includes roughly 914,410 units in the United States and 28,330 in Canada.

The CPSC says owners of the product should "immediately stop" using it in pressure cooker mode, but they can continue to use it for slow cooking and sautéing.

Crock-Pot will send free replacement lids to consumers who contact them.

"Consumers who continue using the multi-cooker in pressure cooker mode while waiting for the replacement lid should be certain the lid is securely turned to the fully locked position by aligning the arrow on the lid with the lock symbol on the base," the recall notice said.
