Health Canada has issued a general recall for certain Apple MacBook Pro laptops as of last week.

The recalled laptops pose a fire hazard to users as their batteries have a tendency to overheat.

Products affected include certain 15-inch MacBook Pro with 15.4 inch (diagonal) display, 2.2-2.5 GHz processors, 256 GB-1 TB solid state storage, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, and one HDMI port.

According to Health Canada the recalled units were sold mainly between September 2015 and February 2017.

While no injuries have been reported in Canada, there have thus far been five reports of minor burns and one report of smoke inhalation from these products in the US.

Approximately 26,000 units of the affected product were sold in Canada and around 432,000 were sold in the United States.

Those who report their laptop as one of the recalled versions will receive a new battery from Apple, free of charge.
