    WASHINGTON -- Hewlett-Packard (HP) is recalling some 70,000 batteries for notebook computers because of a fire hazard, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said on Thursday. The CPSC said it had received two reports of the batteries catching fire due to overheating, causing minor property damage but no injuries.

    The recalled lithium-ion rechargeable batteries are used with various HP and Compaq notebook computers. The picture below shows the models that can contain the recalled batteries and the bar code labels of the batteries (^ in the code can be any letter or number):


    It said the lithium-ion batteries being recalled were used in HP and Compaq notebook computers sold between August 2007 and March 2008 and were made in China.

    It said HP was providing free replacement batteries.
