Apple recalls the Beats Pill XL portable, wireless speaker due to an overheating problem. This problem has been recorded by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and is an official recall of one model of the Beats Pill. This model is the Beats Pill XL, the capsule-shaped speaker system approximately 4-inches tall, 13-inches wide, and 4-inches deep. There’s a carrying handle on the rear, the Beats “b” logo up front, and the name “beatspillXL” on the handle. All other editions of the Beats Pill and Beats Headphones appear to be safe at this time.
The CPSC reports that “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.” While you may own the product and may have had no trouble with it thus far, the CPSC recommends you take action immediately.|
