Strange that it would take so long to send an email regarding a safety issue that has been known since at least Apr. 24. Maybe someone forgot to press the "Send" button ;-):

Sorry, I have been on vacation for two weeks and did not know about the battery issue. For some strange reason it just showed up in my email this morning with a send date of May 7th. Go figure!

I received a product advisory from Nikon in my email today. Evidently, some EN-EL15 batteries have a defect which will cause a short circuit and overheating! Just thought I would pass this information along.
