Two days after Samsung officially ended production of the Galaxy Note 7 line, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a second recall of the device for both old and new models. CPSC released a statement alongside the announcement that has revealed 23 new reports of fires from replacement devices. In total, there are 96 reports of battery fires.

Samsung has received 96 reports of batteries in Note7 phones overheating in the U.S., including 23 new reports since the September 15 recall announcement. Samsung has received 13 reports of burns and 47 reports of property damage associated with Note7 phones.

CPSC recommends that all US consumers immediately power down their Galaxy Note 7 devices and return them for a refund or a different phone. This official recall makes it illegal to sell the device or take it on an airplane.
