Apple is giving out free batteries to the limit number of people using MacBook that have the component failure issues. The battery replacement is a worldwide exercise so nobody is being left out.
According to report, Apple said the flaw was spotted in some 13-inch Macbook Pros without Touch Bars which is said not to be a safety issue.
The affected units were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017, Apple said on its support page, without giving the actual number of MacBooks affected. You can check your MacBook here by entering your serial number to check whether yours is included as well.
If your laptop is indeed affected, you need to take thea unit to an Apple Repair Centre, an Apple Retail Store, and an Apple Authorised Service Provider for repairs. Customers who have already paid for the battery replacement will be eligible for a refund, the company has said.
