Millions of HP power cords recalled in the U.S.

Multinational Corporation Hewlett-Packard (HP) is recalling over 5 million defective power cords in the U.S. and Canada due to a risk of them overheating and causing a fire, an article of International Business Times reported on August 28.

HP was compelled to issue the recall of some 5.6 million cords after incidents of burns and property damage claims from consumers were reported by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The faulty power cords, according to HP, have a code of “LS-15” and were issued with some laptop models. People who might be affected are advised to immediately coordinate with the company for a product exchange. You can find more detailed information about the recall on Hp’s website here.
