NutriBullet facing more lawsuits, claims of injuries after devices ‘explode’ during use

NutriBullet points to a study they had done at UC Irvine in early 2018 where thermal imaging cameras were used to track NutriBullets blending diced carrots and water for three minutes and five minutes respectively, which is longer than recommended use. According to the study, while the NutriBullets did heat up to more than one hundred degrees Fahrenheit, they did not explode, and the more powerful NutriBullet model reached a maximum temperature of 109.4 degrees after five minutes of blending, a temperature NutriBullet says is equivalent to a hot bath, and not hot enough to cause serious burns as claimed by customers.
