Samsung is having a really bad September. First, the company had to recall nearly a million of their new Galaxy Note 7 smart phones because of explosion risk, and now Samsung is recalling some washing machines for the same reason.
Because of 35 international incidents reported to Samsung about the Galaxy Note 7 overheating, the South Korean company recalled the new smart phone. Every single one of the nearly 1 million Note 7 phones that were sold before Sept. 15 were recalled, and since then, the complaints about overheating and other issues have quadrupled. So why are these phones overheating and sometimes bursting into flames?
