Samsung already has voluntarily recalled the devices, but the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is stepping in on a formal recall.

This is becoming a bigger deal with each passing day. I know that the average consumer has a short memory span, and that it is expected that in a few months sales of these phones will likely recover. However, this reminds me of the whole Ford Pinto with the exploding gas tank in the 70s. Can Samsung recover from this?

Unless it can be clarified further, the problem is the battery only, and could be resolved with a change. Easier said than done, of course.
I understand it may be as simple as contamination in the manufacturing process.

I'm sure it can and will recover, and it wouldn't put me off acquiring one of its products.

After a few days of continued mishaps with the battery, Samsung finally is recalling all phones for replacement or full refund, even offering a replacement phone for use while waiting for the new one.

This is really a big hit for Samsung who is so closely competitive with iPhones, and comes at a pretty bad time since iPhone just released their model 7 and 7s.
