Googlel and HP has been forced to recall chargers that were sold with the HP Chromebook 11, following reports that the chargers can overheat and melt.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, consumers should stop using the specific product as its usage poses fire and burn hazards.

This recall involves chargers that were sold with the HP Chromebook 11. The charger is black with outlet pins and has a 6-foot long cord with a micro-USB connector on the end. The model number of the charger is MU15-N1052-A00S, which is stamped on the face of the battery charger that has the outlet pins.

Google has received nine reports of chargers overheating and melting during use. There is one report of a small burn to a consumer and one report of minor property damage to a pillow from an overheating charger.

?Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled charger for the HP Chromebook 11 and contact Google for a free replacement charger,? the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

About 45,000 units will be recalled. The units were sold at Best Buy stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, bestbuy.com, Google Play at play.google.com, and HP Shopping at shopping.hp.com from October 2013 through November 2013 and included with the Chromebook 11 which sold for about $280.
