Washington, DC: Samsung is recalling about 1.9 million (including the 1 million Galaxy Note7s recalled on September 15, 2016 ) defective Galaxy Note7 smartphones because the lithium-ion battery in can overheat and catch fire, posing serious fire and burn hazard to consumers.

Samsung has received 96 reports of batteries in Note7 phones overheating in the U.S., including 23 new reports since the September 15 recall announcement. Samsung has received 13 reports of burns and 47 reports of property damage associated with Note7 phones.

The devices have a 5.7 inch screen and were sold in the following colors: black onyx, blue coral, gold platinum and silver titanium with a matching stylus. Samsung is printed on the top front of the phone and Galaxy Note7 is printed on the back of the phone.

This recall involves all Galaxy Note7 devices received as replacements as part of the previous Galaxy Note7 recall on September 15, 2016 and any Galaxy Note 7 with a green battery icon, regardless of date purchased or IMEI.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning consumers to immediately stop using and power down all Galaxy Note7 devices, including Note7 devices received as replacements in the previous recall.

The phones were sold through wireless carriers and electronic stores nationwide, including AT&T, Best Buy, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon stores, online at www.samsung.com and other websites and on third party websites from August 2016 through October 2016 for between $850 and $890.
