"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."
