OXO Product #1064468 - Splatter Screen

I was using this product while frying bacon. The collapsible handle (for easy storage) does not lock into position when using while cooking. When I picked up the splatter screen while cooking (very hot), the screen part collapsed backwards onto my arm, burning it in 3 places. My burns (first degree) are now peeling causing scabbing (may result in scarring). I did not seek medical attention (but used over the counter ointments to treat my burns). The handle should lock into position while using so that the screen part does not move (the handle and screen act as one unit).
