Sellers Begin to Recall Replacement Batteries for MacBook Pro

Over the years, MacBook users have been plagued by battery overheating problems and as the latest response, one of Apple’s biggest retailers, Best Buy, has finally issued a recall to replace more than 5000 batteries. CSPC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) advised MacBook owners against using the recalled battery.

CSPC recently reported that a number of white and black Li-ion batteries for MacBook Pro had somehow caught fire while charging and caused some injuries. In one incident, a user suffered a serious burn on the leg. Users are asked to immediately remove the battery from their laptops and use the $50 (Approx. £32) gift card from Best Buy for a full refund. It’s also good to know that Best Buy has been contacting users directly.

Best Buy has issued a statement that they are only one of many sellers that sold these replacement batteries. Li-ion battery is known its overheating issues and in some cases, they can reach to hazardous levels. Back in, there were two widely-publicized cases of iPhone combusting spontaneously.
