I can't imagine any chemical change has occurred or any reaction with the plastic or metal .

This has to be potassium nitrate , just strongly impacted ,and hence slow to dissolve. I've observed the same thing in the ball mill I use to powder nitrate .. a ball mill will produce a finer powder than a blender.

It is soluble in water , no need to look for another solvent ... I would leave it soaking in water for as long as it takes to dissolve. (weeks)

If it won't dissolve , just ignore it (assuming you use this blender for food preparation ) ... it's a totally non toxic chemical, sometimes used in the food industry.

There is a remote possibility that if high temperatures were achieved (150 C) the powder mixed in with the softening/melting plastic .
