A fire hazard has prompted the recall of nearly six million Hewlett-Packard power cords.

The LS-15 AC power cords can overheat and start a fire.

The cords came with HP and Compaq notebook and mini notebook computers, and with AC adapter-powered accessories- like docking stations.

They were sold worldwide from September 2010 through June 2012.

HP has almost 30 reports of overheating cords. If you have one, be sure to unplug it immediately.
