Industrial peanut roasting machines are large, powerful machines used to roast peanuts. They typically have a large capacity and are able to roast peanuts quickly and evenly. Peanut roasting machines usually have a number of different settings that can be adjusted to control the temperature and roast time. Some machines also have a built-in smoke generator that gives the peanuts a slight smoky flavor.
It is no secret that many people enjoy roasting peanuts, either for their own use or to give as a gift. Unfortunately, this activity can also be dangerous if not done correctly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), serious injuries from roasting peanuts occur frequently, with some injuries being so severe that they result in death.
One of the most common causes of serious peanut roasting injuries is caught fingers. When removing the peanuts from the oven, those with small hands or those who do not use caution may accidentally touch the hot pan or oven housing and then quickly remove their hand. This action can cause severe burns on the fingers or even loss of the finger entirely. In addition, peeling roasted peanuts can also be hazardous. When the skin becomes too hot, it can cause skin separation and blistering.
In addition to fingers and skin, other parts of the body can also be injured while roasting peanuts. The CDC reports that eyesight is often damaged by exposure to high heat, and that people have also suffered burns to their mouths when eating roasted peanuts without first spitting out all of the seeds. In some cases, people have even choked on peanut pieces when they were eating
If you have been injured by a peanut roasting machine, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help you determine if you have a case against the manufacturer of the machine.
