It is obvious that the Galaxy Note 7 scandal cost Samsung a lot of money and bad reputation. Since then, the company improved safety testing of batteries, but we are now hearing that another Samsung smartphone is being recalled due to bad batteries.
The good news is that this isn’t Samsung’s fault as the batteries installed in refurbished Note 4 phones by FedEx Supply Chain and distributed through AT&T’s insurance program are being recalled. According to Consumer Product Safety Commission, some of the batteries installed in the refurbished phones are counterfeit and are at risk of overheating
“This recall involves batteries placed into refurbished AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 4 cellphones by FedEx Supply Chain and distributed as replacement phones through AT&T’s Insurance program only. FedEx and Samsung have determined that some of the recalled batteries are counterfeit and show anomalies that can lead the batteries to overheat. The batteries are non-OEM, which means they were not supplied as original equipment by the phone’s manufacturer, Samsung.”
