Exploding Nutribullet Blenders Lead to Lawsuits
Homeland Housewares, LLC manufactures and distributes the Nutribullet, Magic Bullet and other food prep products. The Nutribullet lawsuits name Homeland Housewares, LLC as the defendant responsible for the victims’ injuries.
Nutribullet lawsuits allege the manufacturer could have made the products safer to prevent them from exploding and causing injuries. Victims’ claim that Nutribullet blenders are defectively designed and that the negligence of Homeland Housewares directly caused them to suffer injuries.
Why Are Nutribullet Blenders Exploding?
The Nutribullet blender has long been advertised as a fast, easy, compact way to enjoy healthy drinks. You can fill the cup, attach it to the blade, press a button, and drink the smooth contents. Unfortunately, for some people, the Nutribullet blender did not work as promised.
Nutribullet blenders are powerful blenders designed for “nutrition extraction.” They are extremely powerful, high speed blenders with blades that pulverize food in one minute. They are designed to maximize the amount of nutrition you get “from every ingredient.”
What is the problem with Nutribullet blenders? When you use a Nutribullet blender, the pulverizing high speed blades result in intense friction. The friction causes the contents of the blender to heat up resulting in a buildup of pressure.
While the Nutribullet is running, the cup can separate from the blade – essentially projecting the cup and exploding its contents. The flying cup itself can injure anyone standing nearby as can the hot liquid spewing in all directions. Once the cup explodes off the base, the spinning blade can cause severed fingers and deep cuts.
When friction causes the pressure inside the blender to increase, the hot contents of Nutribullet blenders can also explode onto users when they remove the cap after completing the blending process.
Lawsuits Allege Nutribullet is Defectively Designed and Homeland Housewares is Negligent
Manufacturers of consumer products have several legal obligations. For example, they must take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their products. They must exercise reasonable care to prevent injuries to the people who use their products as intended. When manufacturers fail to use reasonable care to prevent injuries, they are negligent. When negligence results in harm, manufacturers might have to pay compensation to the victims.
Nutribullet lawsuits contain claims that when used according to instructions, Nutribullet blenders are not safe and could be safer if the manufacturer exercised reasonable care. For example, maybe a pressure light indicator or pressure release valve would make Nutribullet blender explosions less likely.
Nutribullet claims that the explosions and injuries are the result of user negligence – that people are not following the proper instructions. Homeland Housewares, the manufacturer of Nutribullet blenders feels that people who suffered injuries must have put hot liquids in the blender or kept it running for longer than 60 seconds.
Victims who have filed Nutribullet lawsuits state that the blenders actually exploded after less than 60 seconds and while blending cool or room-temperature items.
Exploding Nutribullet Blenders Can Cause Severe Injuries
Nutribullet blenders contain extremely sharp blades, using hundreds of watts of power to pulverize food. Surely you can imagine the injuries that can occur if something goes wrong.
Victims have reported some of the following injuries caused by exploding Nutribullet blenders:
- Severed fingers
- Damage to nerves
- Severed and lacerated tendons
- Eye injuries
- Limited mobility
The above Nutribullet injuries can result in the need for surgery, physical therapy, medication, and mental health treatment. Some may cause permanent physical and emotional injuries that require a lifetime of attention and treatment.
All because of a defectively designed blender and a negligent manufacturer.
