Own a Vitamix Blender? You May Be Able to File a Class-Action Settlement Claim

The agreement gives owners of certain Vitamix blenders a $70 Vitamix gift card or a new blade assembly

Consumers who own certain Vitamix blenders can now file a claim online to receive a $70 Vitamix gift card or a new blade assembly as part of a class-action lawsuit settlement. The site, blendersettlement.com, went live Tuesday.
Vita-Mix Corp., which makes the Vitamix blenders, agreed last fall to a preliminary settlement of the class-action lawsuit involving blenders made between Jan. 1, 2007 and Oct. 1, 2016. Some Vitamix owners alleged that tiny bits of black nonstick coating in the blenders wound up in food and drinks.

About 6 million Vitamix blenders are affected, according to the proposed settlement notice. The company disputes this number and denies the allegations and liability.

"Vitamix does not know the number of blenders affected because not all blenders experienced flecking, but we anticipate that the number of claimants will be small," says Scott Tennant, director of communications for the company.

Owners of the blenders will be notified about the settlement starting Jan. 2, via email or mail, using registration info provided by Vitamix and retailers' sales information.

You can fill out the claim form online, or mail in a printed version. The cutoff to file is Sept. 28. The final approval hearing is on March 27 at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio in Cincinnati.

I am wondering the same. We didn't buy it directly from the Vitamix, but from a 3rd party dealer. Wonder if we are eligible.

It's early. Sometimes the pool grows. May want to keep an eye on it.

I got the email about it earlier. I purchased it on clearance at Target about 9 months ago and registered it with Vitamix.

If I recall right you call the support and they will ship a new container. Am I missing something? and the issue is well known.

EDIT seems I can no longer submit a claim

Right. And if I purchased it before the earliest possible MADE date (Jan 1, 2007) ,then that would be too early, no?

Huh? You are unhappy because your model does not have a problem with anti stick coating flaking off in your food for over a decade? That is an odd way of looking at things,
