Visit Apple's recall site to check if your 15" MacBook Pro is affected.

Apple has announced a recall of some older generation 15-inch MacBook Pros over safety concerns that batteries could catch fire. Affected models were sold between September 2015 and February 2017. The 13-inch models during the same period are not impacted.

Apple has set up a web site for individuals with these older generation MacBook Pros to check their serial number to determine if their device is impacted by the recall. If you are in possession of a 15-inch MacBook Pro, please visit Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro recall site and review the information in the Eligibility section.

You will find instructions on verifying your MacBook Pro model and finding your serial number to input into the eligibility checker.
