Another customer of NutriBullet claimed that when the machine exploded, it almost turned her into a smoothie…and caused serious damage to her body.
Fulana Jackson A legal document was submitted, claiming that she barely used the NutriBullet 900 blender for 1 minute before things got out of control…resulting in rough injuries that required surgical repair, and then used oxycodone to treat her pain.
In the document obtained by TMZ, Jackson said that she prepared a juice in May 2020-garlic, ginger, lemon slices and water… if you are curious about what she is doing. However, in the lawsuit, she claimed that the friction and heat of the rotating blades caused pressure to build up in the tank.
She claimed that when the mixer made strange noises, things went south and she turned it off-when she put her hand near the bottom of the jar, it allegedly separated from the blade and exploded from the motor base.
According to the lawsuit, the still rotating blade touched Jackson’s left hand… causing serious, deep lacerations. She claimed that when the juice splashed on her breasts, neck and arms, the situation got worse…severe burns.
Jackson said that she went to the emergency room for treatment, and claimed that she needed surgery to repair the laceration and torn ligaments of the left ring finger and little finger… Now both fingers are inconvenient, and the nerves continue to ache.
She claims that NutriBullet has been aware of defective equipment for many years, and since 2014, the mixer has caused more than 100 burns and lacerations. At least, we know that Jackson is far from the first to sue the company. Terrible injury.
She is suing for unspecified damages. We have contacted NutriBullet and have not responded so far.
