Apple Battery Recall

San Francisco, CA - Another major recall - this time by Apple Computer.

Apple has recalled 1.8 million laptop batteries in the US - plus another 700,000 sold abroad.

The recall affects lithium-ion batteries, which have been associated with reports of overheating and fires.

This move comes on the heels of a recall by rival Dell, which recalled more than 4 million laptop computer batteries due to the threat of overheating.
