Well were way past that number now. According to the Canadian government the company has received over 70 reports in the US alone. See Samsung teamed up with Health Canada to help it get the recall ball rolling in the country. In an effort to convince consumers to return their shiny new phones that might suddenly explode the government agency added that tidbit in the report. Those 70-plus cases include a few high-profile ones you may have seen in the news lately. A man in Florida said his Jeep Cherokee went up in flames after a Note 7 exploded inside while a six-year-old boy from Brooklyn suffered burns when a Note 7 blew up in his hands.
