Computer-giant Hewlett-Packard Co. has announced that they’ve extended a recall of notebook computer batteries after it was found they had the tendency to overheat. It’s important to note, however, that this was not the result of any specific incident.
The affected battery packs were distributed worldwide in a few notebook computers manufactured between August 2007 and May 2008, HP said in a statement Wednesday.
“HP fully stands behind the products it makes and has taken a proactive approach to this situation to ensure the safety of our customers and the integrity and quality of our products,” Xinhua reported quoting the company statement.
Customers with affected products will receive a replacement battery pack for each verified, recalled battery pack at no cost, the statement said.
