Apple's recent MacBook recall applies to over 450,000 units, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

This recall involves certain Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro laptop computers. The recalled laptop computers have a 15.4-inch (diagonal) display, 2.2-2.5 GHz processors, 256GB-1TB solid-state storage, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, and one HDMI port. Consumers can determine if their laptop computer is included in this recall by checking the laptop’s serial number at https://support.apple.com/15-inch-macbook-pro-battery-recall/. The serial number can be found on the underside of the laptop computer or by choosing “About This Mac” from the Apple menu. Only MacBook Pro 15-inch model laptop computers with certain serial numbers are included.

The batteries in the recalled laptop computers can overheat, posing a fire hazard. About 432,000 units are affected in the United States and another 26,000 in Canada.
