Apple recalls 432,000 MacBook Pro laptops due to fire risk

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is recalling 26,000 MacBook Pro laptop computers in Canada over possible fire hazards.

If your computer is affected by this recall, stop using it immediately and contact Apple to schedule a free fix. The computers have a 15.4 inch (diagonal) display, 2.2-2.5 GHz processors, 256 GB-1 TB solid state storage, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, and one HDMI port.

Apple first issued a recall for these MacBook Pros on June 20 due to batteries that "may overheat and pose a fire safety risk".

More than 432,000 MacBook Pros sold in the United States are potentially affected by the recall. Other units sold outside of this timeframe are unaffected. This amounts to 458,000 machines subject to recall.

The iPhone maker has reportedly said, "it had received 26 reports of the laptop's battery overheating, with as many as five consumers reporting minor burns and one suffering from smoke inhalation". Apple's recall program page provides details and instructions.

Health Canada says consumers should immediately stop using the recalled laptop computers and contact Apple to schedule a free fix.

Nevertheless, both Apple and the CPSC urge owners of any unit included in this recall to stop using it and get the device to an Apple Store (or an Authorized Service Provider) for a battery replacement. Customers can also mail their MacBook Pros to Apple support.
