According to the recall from the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC):
“Apple has received eight reports of incidents of the speakers overheating, including one with a burn to a consumer’s finger and one with damage to a consumer’s desk.”
According to a statement on Apple’s website, “Customer safety is always a top priority at both Apple and Beats, and we have voluntarily decided to recall this product.”
The products were sold in retail stores nationwide and online from January 2014 through June 2015 for about $300. Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Apple for information on how to receive a $325 store credit or refund.
According to the New York Times, this is not the first time Apple has issued recalls for overheating issues. The biggest was in 2006, when Apple recalled over a million batteries used in the iBook and PowerBook computers because they posed a fire hazard. Similar recalls were also issued in 2004 and 2005.
