An estimated 2.8 million defective Samsung washing machine units in the U.S. are under recall because the manufacturer and federal authorities have received complaints of injuries linked to the affected products, a November 4 article of cpsc.gov reported.
The South Korean company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission received 733 complaints regarding parts suddenly detaching on the upper portion of the “top-load washing machines” before they issued the recall. At least nine of the overall complaints received reportedly resulted in other fall-related personal injuries, such as to the shoulder or jaw. Owners of the recalled washing machines can get their money back, receive a discount if they plan to purchase another unit, or have the washer repaired.
