The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has officially recalled the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, noting that its lithium-ion battery can overheat and catch fire. This follows a recall that Samsung itself implemented in early September. Shortly after Samsung announced the recall, the CPSC published a statement urging anyone with a Galaxy Note 7 to power it down and stop charging it, and Samsung said it was working with the safety group on an official government recall.
