Apple has issued a voluntary recall of its Bluetooth-connected Beats Pill XL wireless speakers due to a potential overheating risk.

According to the company, “in rare cases, the battery in the Beats Pill XL may overheat and pose a fire safety risk”, but it adds that the recall doesn’t involve any other products.

“Because customer safety is the company’s top priority, Apple is asking customers to stop using their Beats Pill XL speakers,” it added.

Customers can contact the company (or visit this page) for more information about how to get a $325 refund or Apple Store credit.

All five colors – black, metallic sky, pink, titanium and white – are affected.

We’ve contacted Apple for more information and will update this post if we hear back.
