"Because customer safety is the company's top priority, Apple is asking customers to stop using their Beats Pill XL speakers," according to a public notice from Apple. "Customers who purchased a Beats Pill XL speaker should visit www.apple.com/support/beats-pillxl-recall for details about how to return their product to Apple, and how to receive an Apple Store credit or electronic payment of $325."

Beats first introduced the speaker in November 2013, and Apple purchased the company in May 2014 for around $3 billion.
