HP Expands Recall of Notebook Computer Batteries

Washington, DC: Hewlett-Packard is recalling about 54,000 Lithium-Ion batteries used in Hewlett-Packard and Compaq notebook computers. This action follows an earlier recall issued in May 2009, in which 70,000 units were recalled.

The batteries are being recalled because they can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

Since the May 2009 recall, HP has received 38 additional reports of batteries that overheated and ruptured resulting in 11 instances of minor personal injury and 31 instances of minor property damage.

The recalled lithium-ion rechargeable batteries are used with various model series of HP and Compaq notebook computers. For a complete list of the recalled batteries and Notebook model numbers, see the link below.

The batteries were sold at computer and electronics stores nationwide, and from August 2007 through July 2008 for between $500 and $3,000. The battery packs were also sold separately for between $100 and $160.
