Apple Inc. has issued a nationwide consumer-level recall of approximately 222,000 Beats Pill XL speakers after receiving eight reports of batteries overheating, which resulted in one burn injury and one report of property damage, according to a report by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 3.

The defective speakers were made available in five colors: Titanium, metallic sky, white, pink and black, and were sold at different Apple stores and major retailers nationwide between January 2014 and June 2015. Apple will provide a free postage box to return the defective Beats Pill XL speakers to the company. Affected consumers can contact the company to receive $325 in Apple credit or electronic payment.
