Google and Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) are recalling about 145,000 HP Chromebook 11 chargers for fire and burn hazards. The chargers can overheat and melt, which can cause fires and burn injuries. Google received nine reports of chargers overheating and melting, including one report of a burn to a consumer and property damage from a charger overheating.
Sold at Best Buy, Amazon.com, and at Google Play, the recalled Chromebook 11 chargers were sold with computers from October 2013 through November 2013. The chargers are black with a 6-foot long cord and have a USB connector on the end. The charger model number is MU15-N1052-A00S located on the face of the battery charger.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission states that consumers should immediately stop using the chargers and contact Google for a replacement HP Chromebook 11 charger at no cost.
