BlackBerry Battery Recall

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall alert for some counterfeit BlackBerry-branded batteries that are known to burn and are a fire hazard. The batteries were issued with Asurion replacement devices sent out prior to November 2009. The problem batteries date back as far as March of 2004 and should not be used. Customers who believe to have a battery meeting these conditions can contact Asurion directly via phone at 866-384-9175 or via their website at for more information and to be issued a replacement.
