Gail Mitchell, a woman who experienced an incident involving a NutriBullet blender, has filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging that the machine exploded and caused severe burns to her body.

NutriBullet is a well-known brand whose primary focus is on creating nutrient-rich smoothies and shakes.

Who is Gail Mitchell?

The incident occurred in November 2020, as Mitchell was using her NutriBullet’s Original 24 oz. Single Speed Black Jar Blender for less than a minute when the explosion occurred, resulting in scalding hot contents being ejected onto her chest, arms, scalp, and face.

Graphic images submitted as evidence show Mitchell’s arms covered in burn wounds and extensive scarring. She asserts that the explosion also left her kitchen in disarray. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the incident took place in November 2020 while she was preparing a smoothie consisting of turmeric, ginger, water, mango, and split peas. Mitchell states that she was standing in front of the NutriBullet, searching for a cup to pour her smoothie into, when the machine suddenly exploded.

In her lawsuit, Mitchell alleges that the design of the NutriBullet blender can lead to dangerously high temperatures in its contents. The high-speed motor, responsible for operating the blades, transfers heat into the canister and its contents, potentially heating them to hazardous levels. Additionally, the rapidly spinning blades generate friction, which further increases the temperature of the contents. Mitchell contends that these design flaws caused the contents of her smoothie to become scalding hot, resulting in first, second, and third-degree burns.

As a result of the incident, Mitchell claims to have required weekly treatments at a burn center for a month. Her burns, particularly the third-degree burns on her arm, have left her with permanent scarring. Mitchell has already undergone three expensive laser surgeries, each costing $25,000, and faces an upcoming fourth surgery. The scarring has affected her daily life, making it impossible for her to wear short sleeves and interfering with her ability to sleep.

The incident has also had a significant impact on Mitchell’s emotional well-being, leaving her depressed, anxious, and traumatized. Seeking compensation for her medical expenses, lost earnings, and more, she has filed a lawsuit against NutriBullet. Mitchell is also seeking punitive damages, alleging that the company was aware of the risks associated with their product but failed to adequately warn customers.

The outcome of Mitchell’s legal battle remains uncertain.
