Samsung reportedly calling back 2.8 million Washing Machines from United Stated due to continuous reports of people getting hurt from it during using the same. After Galaxy Note 7 blast issues, this issue can be concluded as the firm’s biggest nightmare. The reason behind calling back of these washing machines as stated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is that the top of the washing machines unexpectedly detaches from its chassis during use, which causes a serious threat to the user standing beside it.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the fatal injuries received by the firm includes reports of fatal injuries, broken jaw, an injured shoulder and other fall-related injuries which all sums up to 9 of them which made their way to the media.
There have been 733 reports of excessive vibration in the washing machines that includes some cases stating the top of the washing machine detaching from its chassis completely.
The firm has planned to recall all the washing machines produced between March 2011 and November 2016 that sums up around 34 models of top-load washing machines that cost around $450 to $1,500 each.
According to Samsung, the top of the “affected” washing machines posed problems only when a high-speed spin cycle is used for washing beddings and water-resistant or bulky items.
Not only this, the company has also been sued by some US consumers for watching their washing machines “blast” during operation.
Now it’s Samsung’s call whether it really wants to be like this, watching every other device poising harm to the general public then recalling them back at a full refund or be the one fitting their tag of “World’s largest selling electronics making company”.
The choice is theirs.
