Ogden, UT (December 05, 2021) – Two men are in the hospital after their food truck exploded on Friday, December 3rd in Ogden.
Ben and Brevin Pierce, owners of the World Famous Yum Yum Food Truck, were taken by ambulance to a local emergency room after a malfunctioning air fryer caused a serious explosion.
Brevin sustained second-degree burns to his face, while Ben received burns on his body, arms, hands, and face.
One other person was inside the truck but managed to avoid injury.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Malfunctioning and defective products are, unfortunately, common. The proof of this lies in the number of recalls issued in the United States every year. The majority of these recalls, however, are only issued after a significant number of victims report being seriously injured. For anyone who has been injured by a product before its dangerous defects are made known, legal recourse is the smartest choice.
Those who manufacture products have a non-delegable obligation to ensure the safety of their users. From automobiles and medications to large machinery and household appliances, manufacturing companies are strictly liable for injuries caused by failures or defects and for warning potential consumers about the inherent dangers of their products.
