Health Canada updates Galaxy Note 7 recall to 39,000 devices with one minor burn injury

Health Canada has issued an expanded recall posting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, revealing the full stock numbers of the Note 7 in Canada.

The posting states that approximately 39,000 of all recalled devices were sold or distributed in Canada, of which 22,000 were included in the initial recall. The majority of the difference between the two numbers likely consists of stock that went unsold.

The posting also says that while Health Canada did not receive any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of Note 7s in the nation, Samsung Canada received four reports of phone batteries overheating with one incident resulting in a “minor burn injury to a consumer’s forearm.”

The recalled smartphones were sold or distributed from August 19th to October 10th, 2016.
