      Whirlpool Oven Defect Suit Denied Class Status

      By
      Perry Cooper

      An expert witness’s “unclear and fluctuating opinions” doomed class certification
      of a suit alleging Whirlpool ovens are defective (


      Kljajich v. Whirlpool Corp.

      , 2017 BL 154445, N.D. Ill., No. 15-CV-5980, 5/9/17
      ).

      The witness didn’t identify any specific design defect that causes the ovens to overheat
      and fail during self-cleaning, Judge Amy J. St. Eve wrote May 9 for the U.S. District
      Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

      Without expert testimony on the existence of a class-wide defect, individual questions
      would overwhelm class proceedings, the court said.

      The ruling means Whirlpool won’t have to face potential liability for the 2 million
      allegedly defective ovens sold.

      Only Two Ovens Tested

      Consumers alleged Whirlpool’s Vision II platform wall ovens—sold under the brands
      Whirlpool, KitchenAid and IKEA—suffer the same design defect that makes them unusable
      when the self-cleaning function is run.

      Professional engineer Albert de Richemond tested only the ovens owned by the two named
      plaintiffs, which had already failed, before concluding that all 2 million ovens suffer
      from a common defect.

      That conclusion “leaves too large a gulf in analytical reasoning to qualify as reliable,”
      the court said.

      “Without a common cause, it is impossible to extrapolate from a particular oven’s
      failure during self-cleaning to learn anything about all (2 million)
      ovens,” the court concluded.

      Onder, Shelton, O’Leary
      Peterson LLC; and Sullivan Law LLC in Bloomington, Ind., represented the plaintiffs.

      Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell LLP represented Whirlpool.

      HSN, Food & Wine Partnership To Include Housewares

      HSN and Food Wine magazine are teaming to launch a strategic alliance that will bring together retail, content and housewares products across multiple platforms.

      Launching in October, the partnership allows Time Inc., owner of Food Wine, and HSN to debut a platform where users can explore shoppable content, exclusive instructional videos and recipes. The FoodandWine.com platform will feature a branded product line that has been designed by the Food Wine editorial team and tested by its test kitchen team.

      The housewares range will include cookware, cutlery, kitchen tools and accessories and small kitchen appliances ranging in price from $20 to $200. Additionally, the platform will feature curated products that will provide shoppers with additional features related to cooking and entertaining.

      “We are thrilled to collaborate with Time Inc. to introduce new partnership strategies that will engage customers in unique ways, leveraging both our combined content-driven experiences and target audiences,” said Bill Brand, president, HSN. “We are creating a business model that will serve as a cornerstone in our strategy to inspire customers to shop wherever they go.”

      “The combination of our premium brand Food Wine, and HSN’s consumer experience is an ideal partnership as we unlock new platforms that expand our audience and drive revenue,” said Bruce Gersh, svp/strategy and business development, Time Inc.

      In addition, HSN and Food Wine will be hosting a national casting call to secure a culinary talent representative for the collaboration. The selected person will appear on HSN and FoodandWine.com, sharing their expertise within the culinary space to demonstrate the product line. The talent search will be conducted this summer.

      The interactive storefront will launch in October on FoodandWine.com. The marketing program is a key component of HSN’s entertainment integration strategy, which drives engagement across all of HSN’s shopping platforms, including TV, digital and mobile.
