Exploding Bidet the Subject of a Lawsuit That Claims the Device Is "Unreasonably Dangerous"

A Pompano Beach man says his Magic Faucet bidet unexpectedly exploded(!) -- causing thousands in damage both to his bathroom and to his downstairs neighbor's apartment. 

So now, Angelo E. Rosa is demanding cash from Home Depot MFB Inc. -- the bidet's manufacturer -- and John the Plumber to fix water damage, according to recently filed court documents.

Rosa claims that the defendants should have known that the bidet was "unreasonably


He says that the bidet "failed to perform as safely as an ordinary consumer would expect when used as intended" and that it "could and should" have been used as a bidet, "which is exactly what it was used for," civil court filings indicate.  

Rosa was not using the bidet at the time of the incident. He was not injured.
