EC to examine iPhone for safety reasons after a couple of units explode
The EU consumer protection agency in Brussels has activated a rapid alarm system which notifies the appropriate governmental workers at the 27 member countries and asks national regulators if they have information on any other incidents. So far, there have been no other cases. The spokeswoman for the EU consumer protection commissioner says that the department takes all reported incidents seriously, but on the other hand, they do not want to panic anyone. Last year, Apple offered to replace batteries on some iPod Nano devices after the Japanese government warned that there was a fire risk.

I certainly hope there is no iPhone recalling program soon, otherwise without my iPhone I would feel awkward.
