Recall of HP AC Power Cords
On August 26, 2014 Hewlett Packard (HP) announced a worldwide voluntary recall and replacement program, in cooperation with various government regulatory agencies, for certain AC power cords used with AC adapters distributed worldwide with HP and Compaq notebook and mini notebook computers, as well as with AC adapters provided with accessories such as docking stations. According to HP, these AC power cords have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard. HP customers affected by this program will be eligible to receive a replacement AC power cord from HP for each verified, recalled AC power cord at no cost.
