Settlement Checks In The Mail
Consumers who bought a recalled My Little Steamer might be qualified for a settlement in a class action lawsuit with Ingenious Designs and other defendants for alleged product safety concerns.
In the class action lawsuit, plaintiffs alleged that the defendant violated consumer protection laws, breached warranty, and profited unjustly by selling the My Little Steamer, which they claimed was dangerous to consumers.
Neither the plaintiff nor the defendants have won in this lawsuit since both parties agreed to the settlement to avoid the risks of continued litigation.
The class settlement and the recall agreement provide the same benefits, and Class Members can only file one claim per My Little Steamer.
In addition, the defendants have ceased producing, importing, distributing, and marketing the My Little Steamer in the United States.
The Fiore Settlement
Anyone who purchased a Joy or JM-branded My Little Steamer between January 1, 2002, and December 31, 2020, is involved in the Class. Moreover, every member of the Settlement Class is covered by the steamers’ voluntary recall. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada negotiated an agreement with the defendant HSN.
For each unit for which proof of ownership and evidence of destruction is provided, Class Members filing valid claims on steamers acquired before January 2015, even without proof of purchase, will get an HSN voucher worth $8.
Moreover, valid claims for My Little Steamer Deluxe models purchased between January 2015 and December 2017 will receive a $12 cash refund when accompanied by proof of purchase, ownership, and destruction.
Class Members who submit valid claims with proof of purchase, ownership, and destruction for My Little Steamer Go Mini models bought new between January 2015 and December 2017 will get $8 for each unit.
Lastly, Class Members who file valid claims for My Little Steamers purchased between January 2018 and December 2020 will be refunded in full. However, claimants must provide proof of purchase, ownership, and destruction to be eligible.
On September 10, 2021, a final approval hearing in the My Little Steamer settlement is scheduled. The deadline to opt-out of the settlement or object to it is August 4, 2021. Additionally, there is no deadline for submitting a claim.
