Handheld clothing steamers are being recalled by HSN due to serious burn hazard

Recalled My Little Steamer Deluxe Due to Serious Burn HazardHSN is recalling about 5.4 million handheld clothing steamers in the United States and about 14,300 in Canada.

The recalled clothing steamers can expel, spray, or leak hot water during use, posing a serious burn hazard to consumers.

HSN has received 227 reports of hot water spraying or leaking from the steamers, including 106 reports of burn injuries. These reports include eight reports of second-degree burns and six reports of third-degree burns.

This recall involves the Joy/JM-branded My Little Steamer and My Little Steamer Go Mini clothing steamers.

The steamers are handheld electrical appliances (120V, 60Hz, 900w), which use hot steam, emitted from a nozzle head to remove wrinkles from garments and other fabrics. 

The steamers were sold in two sizes: the standard (or deluxe) full-size My Little Steamer or the compact-size My Little Steamer Go Mini.

The steamers were sold individually or in combination sets in a variety of colors, including black, white, red, purple, and teal.

Recalled models have either a flat or triangular steamer head, and the name of the steamer is printed on the side of them.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled clothing steamers and contact HSN for information about how to receive a refund, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

Refunds are as follows: A full refund for steamers purchased from January 2018 to December 2020, a partial refund for steamers purchased from January 2015 to December 2017, or a voucher for units purchased before January 2015.

For more information, call HSN at 855-654-0942 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or go to www.SteamerRecallSettlement.com or www.hsn.com and click on “Recall Information.”
