Just when Samsung looked ready to put the last few months behind it to focus on its next step, there's more bad news from the malfunctioning products department. Less than a month after officially ending production on the Galaxy Note 7, the South Korean hardware giant is back with another major recall.

Samsung addressed issues around certain models of top-loading washing machines back in late-September , citing multiple claims of malfunctioning models, including a woman in Texas who reported that her machine, "exploded with such ferocity that it penetrated the interior wall of her garage."
