US retailer, Best Buy, is recalling 5100 replacement batteries for the MacBook Pro after the US Consumer Product Safety Commission reported 13 separate cases in which the batteries caught fire. At least one caused serious injury.
Best Buy is recalling both black and white varieties of the ATG lithium-ion replacement batteries, all of which were sold between September 2008 and June of 2012. So if you want to find out whether or not you’re currently resting resting a potential blaze of hellfire on your lap (which we recommend you do), you can check the model number. Faulty black batteries will have “MC-MBOOK13B” on the back, while faulty white batteries will list “MC-BOOK13W” as the model number. [AP]
