Beats speakers with fire risk recalled in the US

Apple Inc. is recalling approximately 222,000 Beats compact speakers in the U.S. due to complaints of excessive heat, including a minor injury, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission reported on June 3.

The recall affects the Beats Pill XL speakers, which are equipped with batteries that can overheat. The recall was issued after Apple was notified of eight incidents of Beats speakers producing excessive heat; one of the complaints reported a minor burn injury. The mini speakers come in five different colors and can be operated wirelessly. Consumers are instructed to stop using the potentially hazardous speakers and return them to the point of purchase to get their money back. Some of the recalled speakers were sold in Canada.

Although this recall did not involve any serious injuries, it is often the case that defective products can result in injuries and, in the most severe cases, death.
