Apple on Wednesday announced a voluntary recall of all Beats Pill XL speakers. The company says “in rare cases,” the battery in the speakers 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 www.apple.com/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 $325.”
Customers can identify the Beats Pill XL by the Beats “b” logo on the speaker grille and the words “beats pill XL” on the handle. The product is sold in five colors: black, metallic sky, pink, titanium and white.
Beats by Dre released the Beats Pill XL in November 2013. Apple purchased Beats Electronics and Beats Music for $3 billion in 2014.
