A couple of months ago, Apple announced a recall for a “limited number” of 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro laptops sold between 2015 and 2017. This was due to the fact that “the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk”. If you own one, you can enter your serial number into this page to check if yours is affected by the recall.
If you’re not bothered about checking, don’t worry, the FAA is enforcing it for you, should you attempt to fly with it. They have alerted major U.S. airlines about the recall, and they’re banning the affected MacBooks from flights, reminding airlines to follow 2016 safety instructions for goods with recalled batteries, Bloomberg reports.
