Apple Starts Worldwide Recall For Beats Pill XL Speakers

Got a Beats Pill XL Bluetooth speaker? Apple wants it back: The company launched a worldwide recall program Wednesday in response to a fire safety risk. Apparently, a few of the speakers have been overheating, leading to reports of burned fingers and damaged desks.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission registered a total of eight complaints about overheating Beats Pill XL speakers. Apple is reacting to these with a recall of around 233,000 speakers, and is offering consumers an Apple store credit, or electronic payment, of $325.

Apple inherited the Beats Pill product line of Bluetooth speakers as part of its $3 billion acquisition of Beats Electronics last year, and has since been selling the products in its stores as well as through its website. However, at the time of writing, the Beats Pill XL speaker was listed as “currently unavailable” on Apple.com.
