Over 230,000 of a particular brand of speaker system have been sold in North America since last year. Most likely, Florida consumers might be among those who have purchased the product in question. A recent article alerted readers to the fact that the speaker system has been named in a recent defective products recall, stating that the battery component can become overheated and catch fire.
According to information provided, at least eight reports have been filed, asserting that the product’s battery overheated. One consumer claims to have suffered a burn injury. Another reported that the overheated product caused damage to a piece of furniture.
The Beats Pill XL speaker system has since been named in a world-wide recall. Apple, Inc., who has sold the product on its website, has instructed consumers to stop using the product because it poses a safety hazard. It was reported that Apple typically sells the speaker units for approximately $300 each.
Apparently, those who wish to claim their recalls can contact Apple for a store credit or an electronic reimbursement. It was stated that those showing proof of purchase can obtain a full refund on the speaker systems. If anyone in Florida has been injured by using defective products such as the one mentioned in this case, they may contact a legal professional who has experience in products liability claims. A consumer might benefit from skilled legal counsel as he or she prepares to file a liability claim to seek compensation for damages sustained while using a purchased product.
