Apple issues voluntary Beats Pill XL speaker recall due to 'fire safety risk'
Apple have just announced a voluntary recall of their Bluetooth connected Beats Pill® XL speakers, including a refund for customers. Apple has determined that, in rare cases, the battery in the Beats Pill XL may overheat and pose a fire safety risk. The recall does not affect any other Beats or Apple products.
Because customer safety is the company’s top priority, Apple is asking customers to stop using their Beats Pill XL speakers. Customers who purchased a Beats Pill XL speaker should visit http://www.apple.com/au/support/beats-pillxl-recall/ for details about how to return their product to Apple, and how to receive an Apple Store® credit or electronic payment of AU$399.95 inc. GST.
The Beats Pill XL can be identified by the Beats “b” logo on the speaker grille and the words “beats pill XL” on the handle. The product is sold in five colours: black, metallic sky, pink, titanium and white.
The Beats Pill XL was introduced by Beats by Dre in November 2013 when Apple acquired Beats in 2014.
