The USCPSC cited the only reported accident stemming from the faulty batteries involved a battery that overheated and melted, resulting in $1,000 in property damage.

People who purchased laptops under the following brands between Mar. 2013 and Oct. 2016 might be affected by the recall: HP, Compaq, HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario, and HP Pavilion notebook computers.
