HP expanded the battery pack recall on May 26, 2011
On May 26, 2011, HP expanded a worldwide voluntary recall and replacement program in cooperation with various government agencies, adding battery packs to the replacement program previously expanded on May 14, 2010. HP customers affected by this program will be eligible to receive a replacement battery pack for each verified, recalled battery pack at no cost.
IMPORTANT: If you have validated your battery before but it was not affected by the recall, please re-validate the battery at the program website. Your battery may be included in the expansion.
An additional commercial series/model, the HP Compaq 6520s Notebook PC, was added to the battery pack recall.
To validate your battery, visit the HP Notebook PC Battery Pack Replacement Program website at http://www.hp.com/support/BatteryReplacement. If the validation indicates that your battery is affected, HP will provide a replacement battery pack at no cost.
You can find more details, including the list of models and types of batteries, on the program website (http://www.hp.com/support/BatteryReplacement).
