Let's first start off with how NutriBullets work differently than other types of blenders. This high-performance kitchen appliance is more than just a countertop blender. The NutriBullet was designed to help consumers improve lifestyle habits by creating a high-speed blade and powerful motor to effortlessly cut through an assortment of ingredients.
While this sounds like the perfect kitchen gadget, it comes with a lot of safety hazards and concerns as the NutriBullet lawsuits continue to rise against the company and its products. Common complaints that cause consumer injuries are as follows:
One of the more recent NutriBullet lawsuit cases released an investigative article on a video that circulated, showing a woman demonstrating the several types of circumstances where a device could malfunction or cause injury. The article was published in April 2018, by FOX 11 Los Angeles, and uncovers the NutriBullet blender exploding under various conditions.
In the lawsuit filed against the company, victim Laura Lambros shared the experience that left her with injuries caused by an older model from NutriBullet. During the trial, a test video was released that can be seen below:
There are similar examples of NutriBullet blender lawsuits filed including victims in South Carolina, North Carolina, California, and across the United States. Though these lawsuits may be labeled as an individual or rare occurrence, the company had recently added additional warning labels and signs on its dozens of devices such as "Never blend warm, hot or carbonated ingredients" and "Do not operate continuously for more than one minute." In their instruction manual, NutriBullet states, the kitchen device cannot generate a high enough temperature to cause burns in under 60 seconds of use.
Lawyers have shared that hundreds of potential blender lawsuit cases plan to be filed against the company for a dangerous and faulty design defect. Failure to provide users sufficient labeling has caused an extensive list of safety risks without warning to the consumer.
The consumers' cause of action is typically based on three types of liabilities, negligence, warranty liability aka breach of warranty, or strict liability. Negligence implies that the manufacturer or anyone else in the production process has not operated with due caution to ensure the safety of the product design and development. Warranty laws is a promise that can be expressed or implied between manufacturers and consumers. Strict liability holds businesses and manufacturers responsible for injuries to consumers that were caused by defective, faulty, or dangerous products like the NutriBullet.
As consumers, we have the right to purchase products with the expectation that it has undergone adequate testing to ensure it doesn't pose a safety risk to us as users. When consumer safety is put at risk, the manufacturer can be held responsible for victims' injuries caused by their NutriBullet blenders that are faulty, defective, or mislabeled.
Consumer protection laws are regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, designed to protect our rights as consumers from instances like blender accidents. In a recent Consumer Report article 204, it recommended consumers to not purchase the NutriBullet Pro 900 after defective testing was done and the product in use had cracked blades.
No, the NutriBullet cases for injuries are not a class action lawsuit. We pursue these as individual injury claims because all injuries are not the same.

Yes, in June 2018, there was a class action lawsuit filed in California, stating the Nutribullet blender would explode without warning. Lawyers explained in the lawsuit that the pressure built up in the canister would detach from the blender, causing the hot liquid to burn consumers.
Another class action lawsuit was filed by South Carolina woman Deveta White, who suffered severe first and second-degree burns that caused thousands in medical expenses. Her claim mentioned the NutriBullet 900 Series exploded as she was merely blending cold foods including water, walnuts, sea moss, and cinnamon for no longer than 60 seconds.
