Apple’s MacBook Pro and its Mac Pro have been recalled after an outbreak of a rare respiratory disease that’s caused widespread respiratory problems in Europe, including among computer repair shops.
The outbreak, which has affected more than 2,000 people, began in Austria in late May and spread to several European countries, including the UK.
According to a report published on Wednesday by the British medical charity, AstraZeneca, nearly one-third of those affected have had symptoms of respiratory infections, including pneumonia and bronchitis.
AstraZeneca has called for people who have had contact with the infected to seek medical attention.
The company says it has sent a team to the affected countries to investigate.
In the UK, a company called Apple Support has confirmed that a customer in London had the disease, but says it’s not aware of any infections linked to it.
The British firm says the customers have been sent letters from Apple that contain information on how to get the affected Macs repaired.
