An estimated 5.6 million faulty laptop power cords supplied by Hewlett-Packard (HP) are being recalled in the U.S. and Canada due to fire risks, an article in International Business Times stated on August 28.
HP issued a voluntary recall of the potentially hazardous cords after the federal commission on product safety was notified of 29 incidents of power cords overheating. The overheating resulted in two incidents of minor injuries and 13 incidents of minimal property damage. Consumers who may have bought the laptops with power cords labelled “LS-15” should discontinue use immediately and call HP for a replacement.
