Microsoft recently decided to recall approximately 2.25 million Surface Pro power cords in the U.S. and Canada after receiving dozens of complaints related to overheating, fires, and electric shock. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released details regarding the recall on February 2.
Reports said the power cords included in the packaging of the Surface Pro 2 and 3 models may overheat during use and catch fire. Microsoft said there were 56 incidents of overheating and/or fire, five of which involved consumers suffering electric shock injuries.
The Surface Pro is a portable device similar to a laptop computer that may function like a tablet. The recall also covers power cords for the devices that were sold separately. Microsoft has asked consumers to stop using the power cords and call them immediately for a free replacement.
