Dallas-area residents are probably at least familiar with the NutriBullet device, if they do not actually own one themselves. The powerful little blender, which is supposed to be a tool for making – among other dishes -- healthy smoothies, may in fact be a rather dangerous product. The NutriBullet manufacturing is facing a number of complaints after users have suffered severe burns.
The most recent lawsuit names as defendants not just Nutribullet LLC but also three other companies, all connected with some aspect of the device's sale, manufacturing or design. The plaintiff is a man who claims he was almost blinded when the blender exploded. He had filled the device with a hot liquid and began using it when it exploded, causing severe burns all over his face as well as his hands and torso.
