Employee #1, a 17-year-old employee of Fred's Market, had initiated the pressure-release procedure on a fryer that had just completed a cooking cycle. Apparently she failed to wait the required 3 to 5 minutes for the pressure to subside before she released one of the two hold-downs. She was sprayed by hot cooking oil as she released the lid on the fryer. Employee #1 suffered second- and third-degree burns to her chest and was hospitalized.
