Crock Pot Defending Its Product After This Is Us Episode

Last weeks episode of This Is Us finally revealed the cause of the fire that killed Jack. Friendly neighbor George, gave Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) his trusty old Crock-Pot, which he explained to them had a switch that you “kinda had to fiddle with, but no worries, it still works.” While cleaning up the kitchen following a busted Super Bowl Sunday celebration, Jack turned off the Crock-Pot, but after he left the room, the switch somehow activated, sparking up, igniting a dish towel and creating an inferno that quickly worked its way through the kitchen.  One fan wrote on the Crock-Pot Facebook page that she hoped that Crock-Pot was planning a Super Bowl ad, given that people were tossing their slow cookers. The company then issued this statement: “Crock-Pot understands the concerns brought up by last night’s episode of This Is Us, and we too are heartbroken by the latest development in Jack’s storyline. However, it is important that our consumers understand and have confidence that all Crock-Pot slow cookers exceed all internal testing protocols and all applicable industry safety standards and regulations as verified by independent third-party testing labs. For nearly 50 years, with over 100 million Crock-Pots sold, we have never received any consumer complaints similar to the fictional events portrayed in last night’s episode. In fact, the safety and design of our product renders this type of event nearly impossible.”
