Apple recalls older MacBook Pro laptops due to battery overheating

Apple is recalling a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops.

The battery in these devices can potentially overheat and pose a fire safety risk. The specific model -- MacBook Pro with retina display -- was sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017.

Apple says the recall does not affect any other laptops or notebooks.

Apple will replace the battery free of charge.
