Computer chargers recalled

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Google and Hewlett-Packard are recalling about 145,000 computer chargers because they can overheat and melt, creating a fire and burn hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recalled chargers were sold with the HP Chromebook 11 from October to November at Best Buy, Amazon.com, Google Play and HP Shopping. The commission says if you have one of the Chromebooks, you should stop using it and get in touch with Google for a free replacement charger.

The recalled devices are black with a 6-foot long cord with the model number "MU15-N1052-A00S," which is stamped on the face of the battery charger.

Consumers can contact Google at (866) 628-1371 for more information or go online at http://chromebook.com and click on the Chromebook link at the top of the page and then click on the support link.
