The problematic batteries were made in mid-2015 for the MacBook Pro Retina. They are believed to have fire risks following 6 incidents involving over-heating.
No major property losses or casualties have been reported due to the over-heated batteries.
Apple China has promised to replace the problematic batteries for free.
