A woman is scarred for life after her NutriBullet blender exploded in her face. Trainee fitness instructor Tysha Stapleton, 24, bought the ‘super food extractor’ last week for £100, but said that by its second use it had stopped working.
When she took the blender off its motor and tried to unscrew it, she heard a bang – and the blender exploded in her face.
‘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.

Tysha, who has a six-year-old son, Jaheim, was taken to Dulwich in South London to have her burns treated at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
Despite the best efforts of doctors, Tysha will be scarred for life. NutriBullet said it would not comment on the incident until it had been investigated. ‘We ensure the very highest quality standards are adhered to,’ it said.
