"Hewlett-Packard on Friday expanded its worldwide recall of
notebook batteries for laptops sold between 2007 and 2008 in a
variety of notebooks due to the risk of catching fire.
"The list of affected laptops covers a range of price points and
laptops sold under the HP, Pavilion, Compaq and Compaq Presario
brand names. This voluntary recall is an expansion of another
battery recall issued in May 2009, and was made in association with
the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
"The CPSC warning cautions, "Consumers should immediately remove
the batteries referenced above from their notebook computer and
contact HP to determine if their battery is included in this recall
(even if the battery was previously checked). Consumers with
recalled batteries will receive a free replacement battery."
