This is not cool. I totally freaked out and went to check my computer's serial number when I saw this recall alert!
Apple is doing a voluntary recall for certain versions of its 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops due to batteries that “may overheat and pose a safety risk.” They shared the info on the recall via a notice yesterday (Thursday June 20th) and said that the models in question were mostly sold between September 2015 and February 2017.
You can visit Apple’s website and enter your laptop’s serial number to see if your computer is part of the voluntary recall. If it is affected, Apple recommends not using the computer!
