Default HP Recalling 6 Million Laptop Power Cords

Yesterday HP together with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada issued a recall of just over 6 million (6.023.700 to be exact) notebook AC power cords that pose a potential fire and burn hazard. The cord recalled is named LS-15 and it has been sold with HP and Compaq notebooks and accessories from September 2010 to June 2012.

Do date HP got 29 reports of the LS-15 cable overheating and melting or charring, causing property damage and minor burns. Customers are advised to stop using the cable and contact HP for a free replacement.
