Consumers are suffering severe burns and serious injuries from cans of Pam that seemingly explode for no reason, even when stored away from flame and direct heat. Reports of injuries vary greatly and include –  

  • Second- and third-degree burn injuries to the face, arms, chest, neck, arms, and abdomen
  • Severe impact injuries to the face and body
  • Blindness
  • Physical deformities
  • Extreme pain and suffering
  • Death

We are helping consumers who suffered serious burns and injuries hold Pam manufacturer ConAgra Foods liable for their allegedly dangerous and defective cooking spray and ensuring our clients receive the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries. 


Unbeknownst to many consumers, Pam contains highly flammable petroleum-based ingredients such as ethanol, butane, liquified petroleum gas, and or propane. Consumers who have been burned by exploding cans of Pam say ConAgra mislabeled these dangerous chemicals as ‘propellant’ on the container, allegedly underplaying the risk of explosions and fires the contents pose.

Injured consumers also allege that the design of the cooking spray can is defective because it can vent pressurized flammable ingredients from the bottom of the container when exposed to temperatures that are much lower than expected.

According to fire, explosion and chemical expert Dr. Michael Fox of Chemaxx Inc., ConAgra’s Pam cooking spray canisters have vents that open when the can is exposed to temperatures below industry standards. This defect is in combination with containers that are prone to be over pressurized, potentially resulting in the cooking spray container exploding and spraying flammable ingredients across stoves and open flames.

Lawsuits filed on behalf of consumers who suffered disfiguring burns, deformity and permanent scarring from exploding Pam containers allege that ConAgra Foods knowingly placed the cooking product in a container with defective venting and then knowingly over-pressurized the container.

Plaintiffs in these lawsuits allege the company failed to adequately label and warn consumers of the extremely dangerous aerosol ingredients in the container, ingredients that can explode when exposed to temperatures below what would normally pose a risk in similar containers.


Reports of severe burns, physical injuries, permanent deformities, and extreme anguish and suffering after Pam cooking spray explosions have been filed around the country. Just some of these reports include: 

  • A woman in Colerain Township, Ohio is seriously burned and nearly dies when a can of cooking spray suddenly exploded and burned her all over her body.
  • A 46-year-old woman from Toms River, New Jersey suffered burns to her face, torso, and thighs when a can of non-stick cooking spray exploded while she was cooking.
  • Utah couple suffers third-degree burns after can of PAM explodes and sets both husband and wife on fire.
  • Woman suffers first-, second-, and third-degree burns to her face, arm, hand, chest, leg, and foot after a can of Pam, that was ‘far away’ from where she was cooking exploded and shot flames across the counter, her clothes, and all over her body.
  • A Cincinnati woman suffered burns and substantial deformity when a can of PAM cooking spray on a ledge above the stove exploded while she was cooking.
  • Two steakhouse employees were injured and hospitalized after a can of non-stick cooking spray exploded and caused a flash-fire.
