Millions of defective Samsung washing machines with injury risks recalled
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.
