Delhi: Just after facing a major debacle in form of global recall of Galaxy Note 7, Samsung Electronics is reeling from another challenge. This time the South Korea based electronics company would recall about 2.8 million of its top-load washing machines in the United States to address safety concerns.

The top of the Samsung washing machines can unexpectedly detach from the chassis during use, posing a risk of injury from impact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement on Friday.

The machines being recalled were manufactured between March 2011 and November 2016.

Samsung received nine related reports of injuries, including a broken jaw, injured shoulder and other fall-related injuries.
