Samsung Top Loading Washer Recall

Important Information

Concerning Your Top Load Washer

Updated – Sept. 27 2016

Consumer Notice

We are in active discussions with the CPSC to address potential safety issues related to certain top-load washing machines manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016. In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items.

Samsung is recommending that consumers with affected models use the lower speed delicate cycle when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant materials. There have been no reported incidents when using this cycle. It is important to note that Samsung customers have completed hundreds of millions of loads without incident since 2011.

CPSC and Samsung are working on a remedy for affected consumers that will help ensure there are no further incidents. We will provide updated information to the public as soon as possible on this website.

Affected Models

This notice only applies to certain Top Load Washers manufactured before April 18, 2016. Front Load Washers are not affected.

(113g) vacuum packs of Smoked Nova Salmon with lot code of L.05122014 because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy persons may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

This product was distributed to Giant Food of Landover, MD, which operates supermarkets in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

The contamination was noted after routine testing by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one 4 ounce package of “Imported (Product of Denmark) Acme 4oz. Smoked Nova Salmon” with product lot code L.05122014.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased 4oz. Smoked Salmon (Acme – Product of Denmark) with lot code L.05122014 are urged to return product to store or discard product.
