Wireless speakers distributed by Apple that were sold sold online, by various retailers, and at Apple stores in North Carolina and nationally between January 2015 and June 2015 are being recalled. The speakers have an internal battery that might overheat and cause a fire.
The speaker is a Beats Pill XL and sold for about $300-$400. The Apple product is portable and approximately a foot wide.
Innocent consumers could be the victim of product defects. If you or a loved one has a recalled speaker, discontinue use immediately. Apple announced they will provide a credit or other reimbursement to individuals who own the recalled items. Only electronic requests for returns are accepted and Apple provides the electronic return option here.
Our defective product attorneys in Raleigh have handled serious cases where individuals were hurt while using a product that was not manufactured properly. In the recall noted above, Apple did not handle the manufacturing of the defective item--it had been made by a company that Apple had acquired not long before the product's release.
For consumers who do not work with product liability laws on a daily basis, they are generally complicated to understand.
