Some Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops are being recalled.

The products were sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

As per the listing on its website, the recall from Apple affects about 432,000 units in the United States, with another 26,000 units in Canada.

According to the CPSC, the recalled computers have a 15.4-inch (diagonal) display, 2.2-2.5 GHz processors, 256GB-1TB solid-state storage, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports and one HDMI port.

It's delightful, and if this kind of delightful insanity won't bring people out to the theaters, I fear nothing will. The executive producers are Kelly McCormick, Dany Garcia, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.

Still, everyone with an affected unit should bring it in for service, especially as this includes a free battery replacement.

The reason for the recall is that the laptop's battery can overheat and pose a potential fire hazard. This included five reports of minor burns, one report of smoke inhalation, and 17 reports of minor damage to personal property.

You can find out if your machine is at risk by visiting Apple's recall page and entering your computer's serial number.

Health Canada says consumers should immediately stop using the recalled laptop computers and contact Apple to schedule a free fix.
