Following Samsung Note 7 smartphones were recently recalled, and now Samsung top loader washing machines are facing the same fate as fears of injury to users.
More than 2.8 million Samsung washing machines have been recalled, after reports 730 of the company's top loading machines have exploded.
The washing machine top can unexpectedly detach from the washing machine chassis during use, posing a risk of injury from impact, according to US Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
So far nine reports of injury have been lodged.
Michelle Potgieter Director: Brand Marketing and Communications at Samsung Electronics South Africa spoke to Kieno Kammies and insists this only affects machines sold in America and will have no impact on the South African market.
