Lenovo Recalls Laptop Batteries
Pity Sanyo, as four batteries manufactured for Lenovo ThinkPad laptops are reported to have overheated. This prompted a recall of 100,000 batteries supplied with Lenovo machines. These remaining batteries are also problematic for users if the unit is dropped and the battery hits on a corner. The last recall was of 526,000 batteries manufactured by Sony that had potential to overheat or catch fire. That was in 2005.
Details of the recall are on a page at the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Update: The recall is expanded to 200,000 machines.
