If you own Beats Pill XL speakers, you may have an item that has recently been recalled. Furthermore, the wireless speakers made by Apple Inc. are recalled due to the batteries overheating which may pose a fire risk. Thus far, there have been roughly 222,000 speakers in the U.S. recalled, and another 11,000 from Canada. Apple has already received eight reports of overheated speakers, but no reports of injuries. Likewise, the recall does not include other Beats or Apple products at this point.
According to Apple, recalled speakers can either be refunded for $325 or will be issued store credit for the return. Apple bought Beats for $3 billion in May 2014 to jump-start a headway in the music streaming business because of iTunes sales declines. Apple is no stranger to other recalls. In 2011, Apple recalled some iPad2 tablets. Also, an iPhone replacement program took place last year after some smartphones sold from 2012-2013 had faulty batteries.
