Another recall is now happening for a hand-held clothing steamer that had previously been recalled in 2022 according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Unfortunately, they are being recalled because of a burn hazard associated with the product. According to officials the steamer can spray, leak, or expel hot water while it's in use.

The Black+Decker Easy Garment Steamer, Model Number HGS011, is being recalled, and officials say customers will be getting a refund.
