On May 26, 2021, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a notice of the recall of about 5.4 million HSN steamers due to a serious burn hazard.
The steamers were sold by HSN shopping network from January 2002 through December 2020 in-stores nationwide, or through online retailers, such as Amazon, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, and Lowes. It is believed that around 5.4 million units were sold in the United States, while an additional 14,300 were distributed in Canada. The steamers came in a standard (or deluxe) full-size and a compact size. They came in a variety of colors and included either a flat or triangular steamer head.
The HSN steamers, labelled “My Little Steamer” and “My Little Steamer Go Mini,” were reported to spray or leak hot water which could pose a serious burn hazard to customers. In fact, HSN received 227 reports of a spray or leak of hot water from the steamer, while 106 people had injuries. Eight of these reports were of second-degree burns, while six were third-degree burns.
HSN has advised customers to immediately stop using the steamers and get in contact to get a refund for the product. HSN has also confirmed that it is working in cooperation with the CPSC to ensure the product is safe for future consumption by customers.
