Note7 recalled due to serious injury risks
After receiving nearly 100 complaints, Samsung issued a voluntary recall on their newly released “Galaxy Note7” on September 15. The phone may cause serious harm to intended users, a report of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported.
The recall revealed approximately 1 million units of the latest Galaxy Note series model have a lithium-ion battery that may overheat and catch fire. If the problem occurs, consumers are at high risk of sustaining burn injuries. Samsung and federal authorities received 92 complaints about the Note7 either emitting too much heat or catching fire. Of the complaints received, 26 consumers suffered burn injuries and 55 complained of property damage. Samsung advised consumers to refrain from using the potentially faulty phone and notify their respective place of purchase to either receive a full refund or a free product replacement. The affected Note7 units were also made available in Canada and Mexico.
