Government Evaluating New Samsung Note7 Phone Battery Amid Fire Risk

Samsung's troubles as it tries to recall millions of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are continuing to stack up, and its advice for dealing with the phones just got a little more complicated.

The Samsung website home page features a prominent announcement of its Note7 exchange program, pointing Galaxy Note7 owners to select carrier and retail outlets where they can obtain a replacement Samsung J Series or equivalent device to use until new CPSC-approved Note7s are available. Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration has urged airline passengers to not use or charge their Note 7s while on an aircraft and in the us, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has warned users to "power them down and stop charging or using the device".

Samsung issued an unprecedented recall of the devices last week and agreed to replace every cell phone after receiving 35 reports of batteries overheating and catching fire.

But Samsung says U.S. users can replace Note 7s now with a different model - either a temporary one until the new Note 7 is available or a permanent switch for the company's Galaxy series.

Samsung offered free pizza to apologize to workers at mobile carrier shops who have been handling the unprecedented recall.

"We ate the pizza among a few of us", Lee said by phone.

According to Samsung, battery problems were behind the phones catching fire, but the firm said it was hard to work out which phones were affected among those sold. "But it feels like (Samsung) is trying to make up for it with that", he said, referring to the pizza.

Samsung did not answer emails and calls seeking comment on Tuesday.

NJ Transit has not had any incidents reported to the agency about a Samsung Galaxy Note7, officials said in a release.

Canada issued a recall notice on Monday.

Reports of phone's exploding due to faulty batteries, including one that reportedly incinerated a Jeep and another that reportedly injured a 6-year-old boy, have brought to light the extreme severity of the situation.

The company did not say how many more battery fires in the Note 7 have been reported since September 1, when 35 cases were confirmed.
