Apple recalls Beats Pill XL speakers due to fire hazard

Apple has recalled its Beats Pill XL portable speakers due to a potential fire hazard, according to Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Apple has received eight reports of incidents of the speakers overheating, including one with a burn to a consumer's finger and one with damage to a consumer's desk.

The battery can overheat posing the fire hazard.

There were 222,000 sold in the US and 11,000 sold in Canada.

The small “b” Beats logo is on the grille and “beatspillXL” is on the handle. The speakers come in five colors black, white, pink, metallic sky and titanium.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact Apple for a $325 Apple Store credit or electronic payment. Apple will provide a postage paid box for consumers to send their Pill XL speaker to Apple.
