In August 2019, HP is expanding its worldwide voluntary safety recall and replacement program for certain notebook computer and mobile workstation batteries which was originally announced in January 2018 and expanded in January 2019. Following the completion of a thorough review of all records, our battery supplier recently informed us of additional batteries not identified in the program expansion announced in January 2019. In line with supplier guidance, we do not anticipate any further expansion of the program. The potentially affected batteries may have been shipped with certain HP notebook computers and mobile workstations sold worldwide from December 2015 through October 2018.The affected batteries have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to customers. It is essential that you check or recheck your battery, even if you did so previously and were informed that it was not affected.
Note: For customers who need to check 5 or more batteries to determine if they are affected, HP has put in place a process to assist with the validation and ordering process. For details please refer to the FAQs tab on the HP Battery Recall website at: www.hp.com/go/batteryprogram2018.
Note: If you have already replaced your battery through the recall program, no further action is required.
