Pam Cooking Spray is a staple of many kitchens, but a change to the product’s design may be to blame for numerous instances of unexpected combustion that have led to injury and property damage.
In 2011, Conagra implemented a new packaging design for cans of cooking spray containing more than 10 ounces. This design included a “U-shaped” venting mechanism on the bottom of the can, which would allow the cannister to vent its contents in a controlled manner in the event of a malfunction. According to complaints filed in Cook County, IL, the venting mechanism is defective and has the potential to unexpectedly spray their contents without warning, including highly flammable chemicals like butane and propane. Consumers who allege experiencing this defect have reported serious and costly injuries such as burns that required skin grafts, permanent scarring, blindness, and damage to their home and property.
Conagra changed the design of its larger cans in 2019 to eliminate the U-shaped vents but denied that the change was made due to a faulty design. No recall of the original cans has been issued, and cans with the U-vent design may still be sitting on store shelves or in kitchen cabinets.
