Just days after a model died as a result of an exploding whipped cream dispenser, a mother suffered injuries while baking pastries with her young daughter.

Heidi Dumotier of Tremery, France, said that she was baking pastries with her 4-year-old daughter when she shook a can of whipped cream.

The can suddenly exploded, injuring her leg and blowing a large hole in the ceiling of her home. Dumotier said that she was lucky the can did not hit her head as this would have killed her.

Dumotier was making pastries for her daughter’s birthday.

The consumer watchdog group “60 million,” warned people to stay away from whipped cream dispensers as they recorded over 60 injuries so far.

Consumers reported cuts and bone fractures, and in one case, a person lost an eye as a result of an exploding can.

Last month, 33-year-old Rebecca Burger, a fitness and travel blogger who had over 55,000 fans on Facebook and 154,000 followers on Instagram, died as a result of an exploding can of whipped cream.

The family posted a photo to her Instagram account, showing the type of dispenser that exploded.

They warned her fans not to buy this type of dispenser that is sold by a French manufacturer, claiming that there were thousands of defective bottles still being sold.

The metal whipped cream container dispenser is injected with gas in order for it to be under high pressure. When the dispenser exploded, it hit Burger in the chest, causing her to suffer cardiac arrest.

Burger received medical attention, but she succumbed to her injuries.

Burger was popular on social media, where she posted photos of her toned body in bikinis, and she shared tips on food and fitness.

She also competed in fitness and beauty competitions around the world.
