Hewlett-Packard recalls nearly 6 million power cords over fire hazard


A fire hazard prompts the recall of nearly six million Hewlett-Packard power cords.

The recall comes after nearly 30 reports of cords melting or charring, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The LS-15 AC power cord was distributed with Hewlett-Packard and Compaq notebook and mini notebook computers.

“Customers should immediately stop using and unplug the recalled power cords and contact Hewlett-Packard to order a free replacement,” the commission said in a statement.

The cords were sold worldwide from September 2010 through June 2012.

If you have one, unplug it immediately.
