Apparently Ezee are blaming the LG cells for a defect ?

And looks like LG deny everything. I don't recall reading that in article on the day it was published. I only noticed it today?

Faulty BMS also likely ... To allow overcharging a cell group to a point of unstability. I'm thinking, at leas 4.4V...

Or a puncture. Or an internal short. A little early to be deciding it's overcharge.

I assume Ezee did do some basic inspection and checks to eliminate obvious faults before they issued a recall , let alone finger a reputable cell manufacturer like LG.

Internal short also good possibility. But puncture ? The battery was left charging ovenight, left unattended. So puncture not impossible but seems unlikely.
