Manufacturers of the popular blender Nutribullet are preparing to launch an investigation into an incident in which a woman was allegedly left with facial scarring after the kitchen gadget allegedly exploded.
Tysha Stapleton (24) from London claims her facial scarring is a result of her new Nutribullet exploding and doctors have said she will have permanent scarring.
“It isn’t supposed to be hot but it must have heated up on its own and exploded," she told The Sun.
“The pain was horrific. I could feel my skin burning.
“I thought I was blind. My skin was melting off my face,” said mum-of-one Tysha.
A spokesperson for Nutribullet revealed that Tysha Stapleton has yet to contact the company to lodge a complaint but they are planning an investigation into the incident.
“Nutribullet has received no direct complaint or report from Ms. Stapleton - relating to this alleged incident.
"As such, and until such times as we have a more detailed and fuller understanding of this case - including the opportunity to carry out a full inspection of the device in question - we are unable to comment further on this story.
“We wish to promptly investigate and fully understand what may have happened here in order to determine what action is required. To do so, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the matter with Ms. Stapleton at the very earliest opportunity,” the spokesperson finished.
The gadget, which retails at €130, was a sell-out in Ireland at Christmas, and has become one of the world’s most lusted-after kitchen tools. Nutribullet is even said to be a favourite of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
