Indian Express cited that the recall with US Consumer Product Safety Commissions started last October 13. The company continuously and strongly advice Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users who haven't participated with the replacement-refund program to power down their phone and contact Samsung as soon as possible.

The giant company did not stop collecting Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in the market for the said recall.
