⛔ Recalled: Black & Decker Easy Garment Steamer

More than 2 million of the steamers have been recalled because they pose a risk of causing serious burns. (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission)

No, your steamer shouldn't be leaking scalding hot water. Empower Brands is recalling more than 2 million Black & Decker Easy Garment Steamers for leaking or spraying hot water. The device was recalled in November 2022 and the company repaired affected units, but it's recalling them again after continued injury reports. Empower, Black & Decker's parent company, has received 317 reports of hot water being expelled from the steamers and 82 reports of burn injuries. Seven of those incidents included second-degree burns.

  • Where were they sold? Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and Walmart

  • What to do: Stop using the steamer immediately and contact Empower Brands through this self-serve portal to receive a full refund, even if your steamer was among units that were previously repaired.

  • Alternative option: Looking for a steamer that's portable enough to take on a trip? Amazon shoppers love this affordable option.

⛔ Recalled: Mainstays Electric Mini Choppers

Walmart is recalling over 50,000 of its Mainstays Electric Mini Choppers after five reports of customers sustaining cuts during assembly or cleaning. Two incidents required medical attention. The blade may spin unexpectedly, the CPSC reports.

  • Where were they sold? Walmart

  • What to do: You can contact Walmart at 800-925-6278 or bring your chopper to your local store for a full refund.

  • Alternative option: Skip the spinning blade altogether and try this easy-to-use produce chopper — more than 75,000 Amazon shoppers swear by it. Love to cook? Yahoo editors also compiled a list of their favorite kitchen products, including another top food chopper.

Garden Veggie Snacks is recalling 30-count Veggie Straws variety packs sold at select stores last month because of a potential milk allergen that was undisclosed. No other Garden Veggie Snacks products are affected.

⛔ Recalled: Thule RideAlong Rear-Mounted Child Bike Seats

These child bike seats could pose a chemical hazard. (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission)

Thule is recalling over 8,000 rear-mounted child bike seats because the harness padding may contain a flame retardant, DecaBDE, over regulatory limits. The chemical can be toxic if ingested or if it comes into contact with skin or eyes. The recalled seat is gray with a black three-point harness. The model number (100107) and date code (21/3-23/10) can be found on the bottom side.

  • Where were they sold? Amazon, REI and select baby stores

  • What to do: Thule is contacting affected customers. However, if you think you have a recalled seat, stop using it and reach out to the brand to receive free replacement harness padding and return the recalled padding.

  • Alternative option: While you may have to pause bike rides until you get the replacement piece, you can keep your toddler entertained with these awesome toys.

⛔ Recalled: Lidl Deluxe Branded Macarons Party Edition

Lidl is voluntarily recalling its Deluxe Branded Macarons Party Edition over undeclared allergens. The packaging didn't disclose wheat, soy, egg, milk and tree nut allergens "as a result of non-English ingredient labeling," according to the FDA.

  • Where were they sold? Lidl

  • What to do: Return your macarons to the nearest Lidl for a full refund (a receipt is not required).

  • Alternative option: Looking for a good food gift? These gift baskets will satisfy any tastes.
