The US government has banned Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 on domestic flights, Bloomberg reports.
The Note 7 has been formally recalled following reports that the device continues to overheat, even after Samsung said replacement devices were safe to use. Last week, a Southwest Airlines flight had to be evacuated after a Note 7 started smoking before the flight took off.
Before now, passengers on US flights have been told to power down the Note 7 before takeoff. However, they were still allowed on planes.
Samsung canceled the Note 7 for good on Tuesday and is in the process of helping customers return or exchange their phones. The company is also investigating what caused the Note 7 to overheat and plans to share its findings in a few weeks, a Samsung spokesperson told Business Insider earlier this week.
Business Insider has reached out to the FAA for comment.
