FAA Bans Recalled 15-inch MacBook Pros on Flights

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has banned select 15-inch MacBook Pros on flights due to the risk of a fire being caused by their defective battery. Apple recently recalled over 450,000 units which posed a safety risk. Those units were primarily sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

Bloomberg reports that the FAA is 'aware of the recalled batteries that are used in some Apple MacBook Pro laptops' and had started alerting major U.S. airlines.

The watchdog also reminded airlines to follow 2016 safety instructions for goods with recalled batteries, which means that the affected Apple laptops should not be taken on flights as cargo or in carry-on baggage by passengers.
