(WBAY) – Samsung is recalling millions of top-loading washing machines.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the top can detach from the machine “posing a risk of injury from impact.”

Samsung has received 733 reports of detaching tops. Nine people have suffered injuries, including a broken jaw.

This recall involves 34 models of Samsung top-loading machines. Click here for a full list of model numbers.

The machines were sold at Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowes, Sears and other retail companies from March 2011 to Nov. 2016.

The CSPC urges customers to contact Samsung immediately for a free in-home repair, rebate, or refund.

Call Samsung at 866-264-5636 or visit http://www.samsung.com/us/ for more information.

This is the second big recall for Samsung this year. The company recalled all of its Galaxy Note 7 devices because they can overheat.
