The Galaxy Note 7 smartphone is notÂ the Samsung product customers will need to be worried about.
On Friday, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of 2.8 million top-loading washing machines because of a risk of “impact injuries.”
According to CPSC, the top of the machine could detach during use. Samsung obtained 733 reports of “excess vibration” or the very best detaching in the chassis of the device.
Nine injuries are reported, such as a broken jaw.
The machines were sold at retailers such as Lowe’s, The Home Depot, Best Buy and Sears fromÂ March 2011 to November 2016.
Samsung says owners of the machines may either receive a free in-home repair to strengthen the surface of the washer, or receive a rebate to obtain a new washer.
“Our priority will be to decrease any security risks in the house and to supply our customers with easy and simple choices in response to this recall,” John Herrington, Samsung Electronics America’s senior vice presidentÂ and general managerÂ of its own home appliances division, said in a statement. “We’re moving fast and also in partnership with the CPSC to make sure customers know the choices available to them and that any disturbance in the home is minimized.”
The washing machine remember is the latest headache for Samsung, after devoting remembers for the Galaxy Note 7 after reports of the device overheating and catching fire or exploding. Samsung states the Note recall may cost it at least $5.3 billion.
The product catastrophe simplifies to diminish the brand name of Samsung, but calls into question its quality assurance and attention says director of Columbia Business School’s Center on Global Brand Leadership, Matthew Quint.
