HP Computer Battery Recall

Health Canada says H-P Canada is recalling 26-hundred lithium-ion batteries used in notebook computers and mobile workstations because they can overheat and cause a fire hazard.

 The recall involves Chinese-made batteries that are not consumer

 replaceable and were either sold installed or separately as

 replacements.

 Health Canada says as of December 18th, H-P Canada had not

 received any reports of incidents or injuries, but there have been

 eight reports of overheating batteries in the U-S and one reported

 injury.

 Health Canada says consumers should stop using the affected

 products and go to its website for a list of batteries affected, or

 to the H-P Battery Recall website where you can also find details on

 a free replacement. (The Canadian Press)
