(Reuters) - U.S. consumer safety agency plans a recall of Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s Galaxy Note 7, according to a person familiar with the plans.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said on Friday that owners of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones should stop using the devices and turn them off because of the threat of a battery fire.
The CPSC said last week it was working with Samsung to announce an official recall of the devices as soon as possible.
