Target customers warned of pressure cooker recall

A popular pressure cooker sold at Target stores nationwide has been recalled.

A notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website says the Bellini Pressure Cooker, model BTPRC250 has been pulled from sale because the “lid can become loose under pressure.”

If the lid becomes loose, users may experience “scalding or burning from food being released from the cooker,” the recall notice reads.


Customers have been told to immediately stop using the cooker and to return it to a Target store as soon as possible for a full refund.
