A November 4 article by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) revealed that 2.8 million top-load washing machines are being recalled by Samsung due to a defect that could cause injuries to consumers.
Reports said 34 washing machine models may have some components that could suddenly detach on the upper portion and strike people near the unit. The CPSC and the recalling company received 733 complaints of malfunctioning washing machine units, some of which resulted in personal injuries. Consumers who own the recalled washing machine units may receive a free home service and warranty extension, future discounts in buying new machines, or a full refund for consumers who bought washing machines within the 30-day period before the recall was issued.
