Hewlett-Packard Company is recalling about 5.6 million notebook computer AC power cords in [the U.S.] and another 446,700 in Canada because of possible overheating, which can pose a fire and burn hazard.

HP has received 29 reports of power cords overheating and melting or charring, resulting in two claims of minor burns and 13 claims of minor property damage.

The Hewlett-Packard LS-15 AC power cords were distributed with HP and Compaq notebook and mini notebook computers, and with AC adapter-powered accessories including docking stations.

The power cords are black and have an "LS-15" molded on the AC adapter end of the cord. They were manufactured in China.

The notebook and mini-notebook computers and accessories were sold with the AC power cords at computer and electronics stores, authorized dealers and online at www.hp.com from September 2010 to June 2012 for about $500 to $1,500.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using and unplug the recalled power cords and contact Hewlett-Packard to order a free replacement. Consumers can continue using the computer on battery power. Hewlett-Packard can be reached at 877-219-6676 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.hp.com and click Recalls at the bottom of the page for more information.
