Women burned by Mangano steamer sue claiming company knew of defect and danger


Hot steam and boiling water erupted from their steamers, causing severe burns and they are suing the company they say knew about the defects and danger.

College student Stella Rue and 69 year old Patricia Schere filed a lawsuit against Joy Mangano’s Ingenious Designs, LLC, in federal court on Wednesday.

Both women claim they suffered injuries when the My Little Steamers they bought unexpectedly spewed hot steam and boiling water on them.

The lawsuit charges Ingenious Designs produced a defective product and was negligent because it had information from customers and employees that it caused burns, but failed to disclose it to customers.
