Front page headlines read “Samsung admits to washing machine recall error that led to fire- Samsung made a potentially fatal error in its mammoth recall of 144,500 washing machines with a waterproofing fault that has burnt down homes. There have been 268 burning, melting and fire incidents caused by faulty top loaders that have not been repaired since the recall began in mid-2013, according to Samsung’s latest figures”.
As I flip to page 2, I see another dampener “Whirlpool recalls over 15,000 microwaves- Internal arcing during use could ignite an internal plastic component, posing a fire hazard. Five reports of incidents, including one home fire, two fires involving the surrounding cabinets, one report of smoke, and one report of a burning odour, have been reported”. I just stop there and put the paper aside. Time for some introspection.
