Samsung smartphones with defective batteries recalled

Samsung has announced that it will recall approximately 1 million newly released smartphones after discovering a problem with the batteries. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) reports that the batteries have the potential of overheating and catching fire. 

Samsung and the USCPC have together received 92 complaints of the “Galaxy Note7” smartphones catching fire. At least 26 of the incidents resulted in burn injuries while 55 others resulted in property damages. Consumers may determine if their phone is part of the recall by entering the IMEI number found at the rear portion of the phone or packaging to the official website of Samsung, and Samsung will address the problem by either returning the consumer’s money or by offering free product replacement.
