Apple is voluntarily recalling certain lithium ion rechargeable batteries that were sold worldwide from January 2004 through August 2004, for use with 15-inch PowerBook G4 (aluminum) notebook computers. Apple is cooperating fully with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The batteries, manufactured by LG Chem Ltd. of South Korea, could overheat and pose a fire hazard, according to the CPSC. The recall affects laptops sold since January, which contain batteries produced last December. Approximately 28,000 batteries are affected by the recall.

Apple has implemented a battery exchange program on its company Web site. The recall affects model number A1045 batteries and serial numbers HQ404, HQ405, HQ406, HQ407 or HQ408.

Although no injuries have been reported, Apple has received four reports of overheating, according to the CPSC. Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled batteries immediately. Apple will provide eligible consumers with a new replacement battery, free of charge.
