Smoothie blender explodes and scars woman's face

A 24-year-old woman fears she will be scarred for life after a blender allegedly exploded in her face as she tried to make a smoothie.

Tysha Stapleton, from south London, claims she was left with second degree burns after the NutriBullet machine blasted open in her kitchen.

Pictures show mum-of-one Tysha with burns on her face which she fears will leave permanent scarring.

She told The Sun: "I screamed as the juice hit me. It isn't supposed to be hot but it must have heated up on its own and exploded.

"The pain was horrific. I could feel my skin burning. I thought I was blind. I could see the skin on my eyelid hanging down. My skin was melting off my face. It was unbearable.



"When I saw my face I was scared of my own reflection. I'm scared I will be like this for life. I look like a monster. I will be left with blotches on my face at the very least."

Tysha says she bought the gadget for £100 from a TV shopping channel and the alleged explosion happened as she tried to unscrew it when it wasn't working.

She was treated for burns to her face, neck, chest and arm at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

NutriBullet said it would not comment until the claims had been investigated.

A spokesman added: "We ensure the very highest quality standards are adhered to."
