April 10, 2019 — A woman from California has filed a lawsuit after she was burned by an exploding NutriBullet blender.
The lawsuit was filed by Jayne Griffin, a woman who was seriously injured by a NutriBullet 900 blender that she bought from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
In January 2018, she was using the blender to make a smoothie of kale, cucumber, apple, and ice. All of the ingredients were cold and she blended the smoothie for 1 minute.
As the blender ran, the friction and resulting heat from the rapidly- spinning blades caused the pressure in the canister to build up, according to the lawsuit.
“The canister exploded and the now scalding hot contents erupted all over Plaintiff’s hands resulting in severe burns.”
The exploding blender caused her to suffer burns on her hands, pain, disfigurement, scarring, and discoloration. She was also forced to miss work as a result of her injuries.
Her lawyers claim that the manufacturers of the NutriBullet 900 have been aware of the dangers and injury risk of NutriBullet blenders since at least 2011.
They allege that the blade assembly can separate from the canister. Furthermore, they claim that the spinning blades in the canister can heat up food and the canister can separate from the base.
The law firm represents at least 100 people who were injured by NutriBullet blenders.
The lawsuit is In RE: Griffin v. NutriBullet LLC et al. — Case No. 2:19-cv-02572 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
