Use this replacement filter with your Samsung refrigerator to provide clean, fresh-tasting water and ice from your side-by-side or French door refrigerator. For best results, replace your Samsung filter every 6 months. This refrigerator water filter is used in select Samsung French door and side-by-side refrigerators with filter access inside the refrigerator. While retaining beneficial fluoride, this NSF® Certified refrigerator water filter reduces cysts, chlorine taste and odor, particulates (Class I), lead and mercury. Replace your Samsung Refrigerator water filter every 6 months to ensure clean, safe drinking water. Samsung water filters are tested and certified by NSF® International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to public health, safety and environmental protection. Reduction of Contaminants: Samsung water filters use only a high-grade carbon block which removes over 99% of the potentially harmful contaminants that may be present in your water, including: • Chlorine Taste & Odor: Chlorine is used widely to treat water but may add a particular taste and odor to the water • Heavy Metals & Chemicals: Lead, asbestos, benzene, mercury and carbofuran; these common industrial contaminants with high toxicities can infiltrate the water source and be potentially harmful to your health • Microbial Cysts: Parasites such as cryptosporidium are commonly found in lakes and rivers. They have a high resistance over disinfectants such as chlorine and thus may be present even in treated water.
