The report also mentions that some post offices are being extra careful and that they are not accepting parcels that contain any Samsung handset, however, this is not said to be an official directive from the Royal Mail. These precautions are a result of the Galaxy Note 7 recall which Samsung issued after confirming the battery cell issue in its latest flagship. The handset was briefly banned by the FAA and it remains banned by several major cruise lines. Samsung has had to obtain a hazardous materials permit in the United States just to ship back defective units.
There doesn’t appear to be an easy way out for Samsung here. Even though many have praised its handling of the Galaxy Note 7 recall, somehow the debacle doesn’t seem to end, and with the recent explosion of a safe Galaxy Note 7 things might even take a turn for the worse if that’s even possible at this point.
