Apple Recalls Underperforming MacBook Pro Batteries

by Jeff Carlson

Apple has initiated a worldwide recall for some 15-inch MacBook Pro batteries [1] that were sold between February 2006 and May 2006, due to lack of performance (and not due to safety risks, such as a string of recent Dell laptops that have caught fire [2]). To identify batteries covered under the program, look on the underside of the battery for model number A1175 and a 12-digit serial number that ends with U7SA, U7SB, or U7SC.
