Google and HP are recalling 145,000 Chromebook 11 power supply/chargers because the product can overheat and melt, posing fire and burn hazards.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall. Google has received nine reports of chargers overheating and melting during use. 

There is one report of a small burn to a consumer and one report of minor property damage.

The charger is black with outlet pins, measures 1¾ inches by ¾ inches, and has a 6-foot long cord with a micro-USB connector on the end. The model number of the charger is MU15-N1052-A00S, which is stamped on the face of the battery charger that has the outlet pins.

If you have one of these chargers you're asked to stop using it and contact Google for a free replacement charger. Google's toll-free at (866) 628-1371 between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. PT seven days a week.

The product was sold at Best Buy stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, bestbuy.com, Google Play at play.google.com, and HP Shopping at shopping.hp.com from October through November of this year.

The charger was included with the Chromebook 11, which sold for about $280.
