More lawsuits filed against cooking spray manufacturers

May 7, 2019

Six more lawsuits have been filed against food packaging giant Conagra Brands Inc. alleging the company’s cooking spray products were prone to explode.

Connecticut-based law firm Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder filed the suits Tuesday on behalf of eight people who claimed that they were harmed when the aerosol cans exploded in their kitchens.

Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder previously filed at least two lawsuits against Conagra making the same claims. One involved a West Haven mother who suffered severe burns after a can exploded while she was cooking for her family in 2014. In the other, two Yale students operating a catering business were injured in 2013, also in Connecticut.
