The latest in a long line of injuries caused by exploding whipped cream makers in France occurred in the town of Tremery in the Moselle department in the east of the country.
A mother, who was making a dessert for her four-year-old daughter’s birthday, was injured when the whipped cream dispenser exploded in her hands.
“I shook the bottle and then it just exploded,” the victim told local radio. “It was terrible, the lid was gone and the cannister was lodged in the ceiling. When I saw the 15cm hole that it made, I thought if I had been hit it in the head, I would have been finished,” she said.
The woman was however left with a leg injury after being hit by a part of the dispenser.
“At the time, I did not understand what was going on and did not feel anything. It was only when I saw the blood I realized,” she said.
The brand of the dispenser she was using has not been named.
The incident would almost certainly not have made the news but it came just over a week after a young French blogger and Instagram star was killed when her own whipped cream dispenser exploded.
Rebecca Burger, who had a large following on the social media site, where she posted regular pictures of herself promoting fitness products, died in a freak accident after a pressurised canister used for dispensing whipped cream exploded, hitting her in the chest, her family said.
Her family warned the public against using the Ard'Time dispenser and posted a picture on Instagram of the model that Burger had used.
