Not all of the power cords with the “LS-15” mark are affected.  You can go to the HP Notebook PC AC Power Cord Replacement program website at this link, to see if your power cord is affected.  If your cord is affected, HP recommends you stop using it immediately.  HP will replace eligible power cords at no cost to the consumer.  If you might have one of these please check and get it replaced immediately.
