    CLAIM ID: {{REC.name_no}}


    If you own a Vitamix blender covered by this Settlement, you could get a $70 gift card to purchase certain Vitamix products or a free replacement blade assembly.

    A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit, Linneman v. Vita-Mix Corporation, No. 1:15-cv-748 (U.S. Dist. Ct., S.D. Ohio), alleging that the top seal of the blade assemblies in certain Vitamix containers may produce black flecks. These flecks are of a non-stick material common in cookware and many other products in the food industry. Vitamix produced information from an independent third-party lab reporting that the flecks are harmless when consumed and do not present a human health or safety risk. However, Plaintiffs allege that, as a result, Vitamix blenders are worth less than what consumers and businesses paid to purchase them. You must submit a valid claim to receive a gift card or a free replacement blade assembly that does not produce flecks. A Claim Form is attached to this Notice or you can file a claim at


    In the lawsuit of Linneman v. Vita-Mix Corporation, No. 1:15-cv-748 (U.S. Dist. Ct., S.D. Ohio), you are in the Settlement Class if you: (a) own a Vitamix household blender with a blade assembly dated on or after January 1, 2007 but before October 1, 2016; or (b) own a Vitamix commercial blender that was (i) purchased on or after September 15, 2015 but before August 9, 2016 or before April 7, 2017 for XL product line commercial blenders, (ii) never used in connection with a Replacement Seal that does not produce flecks, and (iii) was purchased through a third-party commercial supplier.


    Class Members who timely submit a Valid Claim can receive certain benefits depending on whether they purchased a household or commercial Vitamix blender. Those who own a household blender may choose between (1) a $70 gift card to purchase Vitamix products (capped at $140 per household); or (2) a newly designed replacement blade assembly that does not produce flecks. Owners of commercial blenders can receive a new replacement blade assembly, with a maximum of two blade assemblies. Vitamix also agreed to pay (1) reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs to Class Counsel; (2) a $3,000 Service Award to each of the Named Plaintiffs; and (3) the costs of administering the Settlement. Payment of these amounts will not reduce the benefits available to Class Members. Class Counsel will file a fee request by January 31, 2018 seeking up to $9 million. Defendants oppose this request. The fee request will also be posted on the Settlement Website.


    Submit a Claim Form. To qualify for any Settlement benefits, you must submit a timely Claim Form. A Claim Form is attached to this Notice, or you can submit a Claim Form electronically on the Settlement Website: You can also download a Claim Form from the Settlement Website and mail or email it to the Settlement Administrator. Your Claim Form must be postmarked or submitted online no later than September 28, 2018.

    Opt Out. You may exclude yourself from the lawsuit and keep your right to sue Vitamix on your own by sending a written request for exclusion to the Settlement Administrator by March 7, 2018. If you do not exclude yourself, you will be bound by the Settlement and give up your right to sue regarding the settled claims. Visit for more details.

    I received this notice also. I haven't noticed any black flecks so I just ignored it. I don't need to try to get another blade assembly to just lie around the house cluttering up an already cluttered up place.
