What is the Ninja Blender?
Ninja blenders have 6 razor-sharp blades that are stacked on a vertical column in the pitcher. Unfortunately, the blades are not locked into place. If consumers take off the lid, the blades can fall out, causing severe laceration injuries. The Ninja Blender is also sometimes referred to as a “Nutri Ninja”, “Ninja Bullet” or “Ninja Foodi Blender”.
SharkNinja Recalls 1.1 Million Blenders for Lacerations Caused by Razor Sharp Blades
SharkNinja in November 2015 recalled more than 1.1 million Ninja Professional Blenders after 53 people suffered severe lacerations, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission . CPSC says the risk can be avoided by locking the lid and pouring through the spout, or by removing the lid and spinning blades before pouring. However, many consumers may not be aware of the risk of the stacked blade assembly.
The recalled blenders have model numbers beginning with BL 660, BL 663 or BL 665. The blade assembly was sold between March 2012 and September 2015 at stores like Bath & Beyond, Costco, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Target, Walmart, online, and other retailers.
All recalled Ninja blender models have a motor base that is removable gray or white with a black lid, cinnamon, or platinum. The power of the models’ motors varies from 1,000 to 1,200 watts. In addition, the recalled blenders may have been sold with additional accessories, including a 40 or 64-ounce bowl, a chopping blade assembly, or a dull dough blade assembly.

Ninja Lawsuit Filed in New York
A products liability lawsuit was recently filed against SharkNinja Operating, LLC, alleging the misrepresentation of the safety of the Ninja blenders. The lawsuit was filed by Plaintiff Angela Cappelletti, who claims that the blender caused her severe injuries.
The Complaint further alleges that design defects in the Ninja blenders include the stacked blade assembly not locking in place, which can cause it can fall out of the pitcher during use, putting the user at risk of injuries requiring medical attention.
Cappelletti alleges that the Ninja blender caused her severe injuries and medical expenses, and that "the incident occurred as the result of the Ninja blenders' defect, namely, the Ninja blender's use of an unsecured blade assembly."
Georgia Woman Files Ninja Blender Lawsuit
A lawsuit was recently filed on behalf of Priscilla Brown, a Georgia resident who claims that her Nutri Ninja blender injured her when its plastic container explosively separated from the base and spewed its hot contents onto her.
The Complaint alleges that the explosion was caused by the blender pressurizing during use due to frictional energy created by rapidly rotating blades, which also causes a rise in temperature. Consumers have no way of knowing if the contents are at risk of exploding aside from handling the blender cup, which immediately exposes them to a possible explosion, according to the lawsuit.
Brown further claims that Nutri Ninja blenders are "unreasonably dangerous," and that SharkNinja failed to adequately warn consumers of the risk of blenders overheating or exploding.
California Woman Files Lawsuit Over Injuries Caused by Ninja Personal Blender
A California woman recently filed a claim after being injured when the single-serve Nutri Ninja cups detached from the blending base motor, leaving the exposed blades spinning freely. She suffered serious laceration injuries when the blades fell onto her hands after she used too much pressure. She was severely injured by the Nutri Ninja BL480 blender.
In a separate incident, a woman in Fresno, California reported that her Ninja Blender blew up (exploded), sending shards of broken plastic flying across her kitchen. She was injured in the process.
