Thousands of faulty laptop batteries recalled in U.S.

Posted on Monday, June 27th, 2016 at 4:43 pm    

Approximately 41,000 units of Hewlett-Packard (HP) laptop batteries sold in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are being recalled due to fire risks that can cause serious burn injuries to consumers, a June 23 article of cpsc.gov stated.

Reports said the batteries,which were used in at least six HP laptop models, may emit too much heat during use. If the problem occurs, consumers who have the defective laptop may suffer from burn injuries. If the batteries catch fire, they may cause consumers property damage. HP and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have received seven complaints of charring, melting, and overheating laptop batteries, four of which caused property damage worth $4,000. The CPSC has identified the eight laptop barcodes to help consumers determine if their units are affected.
