Apple recently pointed out that some MacBook Pro batteries have a fire risk and announced recycling. The Federal Aviation Administration also said on August 12 that passengers will be prohibited from carrying the MacBook Pro on the designated model.
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a statement stating that the recovered battery was used in some of Apple’s MacBook Pro laptops and has issued an alert to the airline. The authorities also reminded airlines to comply with the 2016 safety code for recycling battery products, meaning that the affected laptops will not be able to carry them on board or in hand luggage.
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency issued a warning on the MacBook Pro model earlier in August, instructing airlines in the region to comply with the 2017 regulations, requiring passengers to carry lithium-ion batteries during their flight. The device is turned off.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro sold in the problematic laptop from September 2015 to February 2017. Apple announced a recycling in June that the battery on the laptop may overheat and pose a fire hazard.
