Samsung told our correspondent that the device in question had a third-party component. The battery on the used device was not manufactured by Samsung or a company authorised by Samsung, it said. “We sincerely wish for our customer’s swift recovery, and strongly recommend all our consumers to use Samsung’s genuine or approved batteries that have been specifically designed for use in Samsung products.”

Although, Samsung shouldn’t be blamed for this since the device has been confirmed to contain third party accessory but then, this should  warn us about the potential dangers of some of these devices.
