HP Recalls An Additional 101K Laptop Batteries

Because laptops shouldn't catch on fire, HP has expanded its battery recall to include an additional 101,000 batteries. If you have a laptop made by HP or Compaq, you might want to check the bar code on your battery.
You may need to check that your battery is eligible for recall. The batteries are black, and should have the bar codes 6BZLU, 6CGFK, 6CGFQ, 6CZMB, 6DEMA, 6DEMH, 6DGAL or 6EBVA printed on the back of the battery. Users can also download software from HP's recall website to check if the battery qualifies for a recall. In the U.S., users can call HP customer service at 1-888-202-4320 to request a replacement battery.
