Johnson//Becker Files Ninja Blender Lawsuit in New York
Johnson//Becker filed a lawsuit against SharkNinja Operating, LLC alleging the misrepresentation of the safety of the Ninja blenders. The firm is representing Plaintiff Angela Cappelletti, who alleges that the blender caused her severe injuries.
The Complaint alleges the defects in the Ninja blenders are caused by the stacked blade assembly not locking in place, and it can fall out of the pitcher during use, putting the user at risk of injuries requiring medical attention.
Ninja Recalls Millions of Blenders
Back in 2015, the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled 12 models of Ninja professional blenders with model numbers that start with BL 660, BL 663 or BL 665.
The 12 recalled Ninja blender model numbers are:
|BL 660’s:||BL660, BL660B, BL660C, BL660QCN, BL660QPL, BL660W, BL660WM|
|BL 663’s:||BL663, BL663CO|
|BL 665’s:||BL665QBK, BL665QCN, and BL665QWH|
According to the CPSC, all of the models have a clear 72-ounce pitcher with a removable gray or black lid that opens and locks closed, a stacked blade assembly, and one or more Nutri Ninja cups.
All recalled Ninja blender models have a motor base that is gray, white, black, cinnamon, or platinum. The power of the models’ motors varies from 1,000 to 1,200 watts.
In addition, the recalled models 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 Blender Blade Packaging Design Defect
Our lawyers have received multiple reports from injured consumers complaining that the Ninja Blender blades have been defectively packaged. The blades come in flimsy plastic wrapping, or in some instances are included in the box with no packaging at all.
We have received at least 6 reports of lacerations occurring from consumers reaching into the box and accidentally touching the blades due to the lack of protective packaging. The lacerations are resulting deeps cuts and, in many instances, require stitches.
