BETHESDA, MD (KTAL/KMSS) — More than 5 million handheld clothing steamers are being recalled because they may cause serious burns.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, HSN is recalling the Joy/JM-branded My Little Steamer® and My Little Steamer® Go Mini after receiving 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.

The steamers come in two sizes: the standard (or deluxe) full-size My Little Steamer or the compact-size My Little Steamer Go Mini. They 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 product is printed on the side of the unit.

The steamers were sold online at HSN.com and on the HSN television network.
