According to the recall notice filed with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recalled Crock-Pot multi-cooker can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Crock-Pot in pressure cooker mode, but may continue to use for slow cooking and sautéing. Consumers should contact Crock-Pot immediately to obtain a free replacement lid. 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.Where Were the Recalled Crock-Pot Multi-Cookers Sold?
