Update: Nevada Mom Alleges NutriBullet Explosion Caused Severe Hand Injuries
December 12, 2017 – A woman from Nevada says she was crippled after a NutriBullet blender exploded and mutilated her hand, according to TMZ. Plaintiff Wendy Littlefield of Las Vegas, Nevada, says she was using her NutriBullet to mix beans and tomatoes when the blender exploded, sending the blades slicing through her right hand.
What’s the Problem?
November 17, 2017 – It’s billed as a powerful blender that can pulverize food better than competing models because of it high-speed motors; however, at least 22 people have filed suit against the makers of NutriBullet, alleging the device caused burns, lacerations, nerve damage, and other serious injuries.
The device consists of a closed canister with blades that spin at tens of thousands of revolutions per minute (RPMs). This creates friction and extreme heat, which causes an unstable environment in which the contents of the blender can erupt, according to the suits.
The most recent NutriBullet lawsuit was filed by Rosa Rivera, mother of late singer Jenni Rivera, who claims was making chili recently when her NutriBullet combusted.
“I want to tell the people don’t use this product no more because it’s dangerous,” Rivera said.

Rivera alleges that NutriBullet was defectively designed, causing canister over-pressurization leading to dangerous explosions of its contents. Rivera is demanding that all NutriBullet products be recalled, and that future models include a warning regarding its potential risks.
In a statement contesting the plaintiffs’ claims, the company said: “Reports of our blenders causing injury are extremely rare… We typically find customers have failed to adhere to the operating instructions and warnings provided.”
