Samsung Electronics, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a voluntary recall of more than 43,000 Samsung Over-the-Range Microwaves due to a faulty component.
If an installation bolt comes in contact with an electrical component inside the unit and the microwave is plugged into an ungrounded outlet, it could create a shock hazard.
The recall involves Samsung 1000 watt over-the-range microwave ovens. The model and serial numbers can be found at the CPSC Web site.
Consumers should contact Samsung immediately to schedule a free repair. In the meantime, the recalled microwave ovens should be unplugged to avoid hazard.
