Amtrak, the operator of most of the United States’ passenger rail services, placed a ban on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The devices are known to catch fire spontaneously.

The railroad said that the device is no longer allowed on trains and in stations, effective immediately.

Passengers who are found with the Galaxy Note 7 will be asked disembark at the next stop.

Earlier in the month, the U.S. Department of Transportation along with the Federal Aviation Administration announced an emergency order banning all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones on flights.
