Samsung is facing a class-action lawsuit in Canada over its Galaxy Note 7 phones.
The phones were recalled last month, after it was discovered the batteries could overheat and cause the devices to catch fire.
The lawsuit was filed in the Ontario Superior Court by Lake Lawyers, LLP of London, Ont.
It alleges Samsung was negligent because the company knew – or should have known – that customers could be harmed.
The lawsuit is seeking damages and a declaration that Samsung’s actions were in contravention of the Consumer Protection Act and Competition Act.
Samsung no longer makes the devices and has advised customers to stop using them immediately.
Customers who return the phones can exchange them for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, or receive a full refund.
