Nutribullet Blender Explosions
The NutriBullet blender has a 600-watt motor with razor-sharp blades. If the food or liquids get too hot, the pressure in the canister can increase to dangerous levels and it can potentially explode when opened. Some of the potentially catastrophic injuries include:
- Second-degree or third-degree burns
- Hand cuts, tendon and nerve lacerations
- Scarring and nerve injury
- Eye injury
Homeland Housewares, the manufacturer of the Nutribullet and Magic Bullet blenders, based in California is accused of failing to fix design flaws to prevent explosions. According to lawyers who filed Nutribullet injury lawsuits:
“The company is aware of the problem and, in fact, we have brought a prior lawsuit against a common manufacturer based on the Magic Bullet’s similar design defect.”
According to one injured plaintiff, Sheryl Utal said she used her NutriBullet daily for years to make smoothies. One morning while she was using the device, as usual, the Nutribullet exploded after about 20 seconds, causing second-degree burns. According to Utal, "It just came flying out all over me, all over the kitchen, the ceilings, the walls." She said her arms felt "on fire." Utal is one of the people now suing the company.
Another man, Pete Damiano, blames the company for his injuries while making a mango sauce for his family. While it's unclear whether the sauce was hot or not before Damiano put it into the blender, he did suffer second-degree burns that almost left him blind.
