Manufacturer Pulls Pressure Cookers Off Shelves in Wake of Boston Bombing

Company pulls pressure cookers off shelves after Boston bombings.
(Williams-Sonoma website)

The Williams-Sonoma company has temporarily pulled its pressure cookers off shelves — at least in the Eastern U.S. — reportedly out of “respect” for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The company not only sells their own brand, but also carries other brands of cookware.

While hearts are obviously in the right place, the gesture was not really necessary. Nobody has accused pressure-cooker manufacturers of being complicit in the events that killed Americans in Boston.

Company officials did not say for how long the items would be unavailable, but did emphasize the products are still available online.
