Apple recalls 28,000 PowerBook batteries

Apple has agreed to recall about 28,000 batteries used in its 15-inch PowerBook G4 laptop computers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said today, reports Reuters. “The batteries, made by LG Chem Ltd. (KSE:051910.KS – News) of South Korea, could overheat and pose a fire hazard, the CPSC said,” notes the report. “Apple is not financially responsible for this recall,” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said. The recall affects laptops sold since January which contain batteries made during the last week of December 2003 only — with the model number A1045 and serial numbers that begin with HQ404, HQ405, HQ406, HQ407 or HQ408.
