HP is recalling even more laptops for ‘fire and burn hazards’ caused by faulty batter

Some HP laptops continue to suffer from faulty batteries that may cause “fire and burn damage,” according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. As noted by CNET and Tom’s Hardware, the HP recall was first initiated in January of 2018 and then expanded in January of this year, but that most recent development failed to make headlines because the government shutdown interfered with the CPSC’s ability to communicate the expansion. 
 
“This recall expansion was previously announced independently on January 17, 2019 by the firm due to US government furlough,” reads the CPSC’s website dedicated to the HP recall, which was updated on Tuesday of this week to include news of the most recent January 2019 expansion. 
 
The new recall date is now March 12th, 2019, and it includes an additional 28,500 laptop units on top of the 50,000 initially announced back in early 2018. According to the CPSC, “HP has received eight new reports of battery packs in the US overheating, melting, or charring, including one report of minor injury and two reports of property damage totaling $1,100.”
