Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones have been banned on any airline flight in North America after emergency orders were issued Friday by Transport Canada and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
It’s in response to reports of the phones catching fire.
The phones cannot be carried on board or even packed in checked bags on flights to and from Canada and the United States or within either country.
They also can’t be shipped as cargo.
Passengers carrying the Note 7s will not be allowed to board planes and those who try to sneak them in their luggage could face charges.
Samsung has issued a massive recall, citing battery manufacturing error. The company discontinued the product just two months after its release in August.
There have been reports of nearly 100 smartphones overheating in the United States. One fire erupted on a flight earlier this month.
