its batteries “may pose a fire safety risk.


The company says there are a “limited number” of affected units, sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

If eligible, the company says it’ll replace your battery for free


The bad news: You’ll need to send your MacBook to one of Apple’s repair centers, and the company’s estimating the fix could take one to two weeks. That’s quite a while, particularly if you need that machine for work. And Apple says this won’t extend your warranty.

Thanks.
Looks like mine is not "in the affected serial number range."

Mine's a 2013. If it were a problem it'd have caught fire by now.
