A federal judge has once again dismissed a products liability suit brought by the parents of a six-month-old baby who was severely burned by a home deep fryer after finding that the plaintiffs’ proposal for a safer model of the appliance would pose its own hazards.

In his 22-page opinion in Van Buskirk v. The West Bend Co., U.S. District Judge Robert F. Kelly concluded that a young child cannot be considered an “intended user” of a deep fryer.
