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.

An estimated 4.7 million baby strollers in the U.S. are being voluntarily recalled by its manufacturer due to amputation risks, CNN reported on November 21.
Reports said nearly a dozen models of Century and Graco strollers manufactured in China may severely injure the fingers of children during use. The affected strollers reportedly are equipped with hinges on the sides that can cut off a finger. Several incidents of partial severing of children’s fingertips caused by the strollers reached Graco, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated. Parents and other caretakers are instructed to make sure that the hinges are completely in the lock position and to quickly remove the child from the stroller as it begins to fold. Graco reportedly will provide repair kits for owners of the affected strollers.
