Best Buy Illegally Sold Recalled Products

Best Buy Illegally Sold Recalled Products

Best Buy agreed to pay a $3.8 million fine for selling 16 recalled products from 2010 to 2015.  It is illegal to sell a product after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) labels it as a recall. The attorneys at Doucet & Associates Co., L.P.A. help protect people by enforcing regulations under the CPSC.

The CPSC protects consumers from products with unreasonable risks associated with fire, electrical, chemical and mechanical hazards. The CPSC helped reduce the rate of injury and death associated with consumer products over the last few decades.

Best Buy failed to remove recalled items from store shelves and website and did not correctly inform their employees of recalled products. The recalled products did not accurately get identified in their employee cataloging systems. Products such as dehumidifiers, household appliances, computers, kitchen appliances, and televisions are only a few types of recalled technology sold.

A list of all recalled products illegally sold by Best Buy can be found on the CPSC website by clicking here. If you purchased one of these recalled items and received an injury from using it, contact the attorneys at Doucet & Associates Co., L.P.A. for legal help. Call us at (614)944-5219 today.

Get Your Refund for the Samsung Galaxy Note7 at 3pm Today

Samsung issued a voluntary recall on original and replacement Galaxy Note7 phones sold by wireless carriers and retailers in the United States. The phones have a history of overheating and have been labeled with serious fire and burn hazards by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Due to the safety risk, Samsung is asking everyone to turn off the Galaxy Note7 phones. Consumers can contact the carrier or retailer where they purchased the phone to learn about refund options. Samsung has modified the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program so consumers can exchange the Galaxy Note7 for another Samsung smartphone or a monetary refund.

A consumer choosing to exchange the Galaxy Note7 for a different smartphone can also replace specific Galaxy Note7 accessories. Consumers will receive a refund if the exchange is cheaper than the original price paid for the Galaxy Note7.

Some consumers may also qualify for extra bill credit depending on the situation. Galaxy Note7 owners can read more about the refund credit policies here. Consumers who purchased the smartphone on the Samsung website can contact the company at 1-844-365-6197. Samsung is sending consumers safety boxes to return the Galaxy Note7 phones by mail.
