CPSC Confirms – Sony to Recall Laptop Batteries
If you’ve been watching the tech news channels at all over the past 2 months, you’ll have read reports and seen horrifying pics of charred Dell and Apple laptops. Both companies have issued recalls on the Sony batteries that caused the carnage, but Sony itself has been reluctant to issue it’s own recall, until now.
Snip from the C|Net News article:
Sony is planning to announce a massive battery recall of its own, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) confirmed.
The recall, expected this month, will encompass all possibly defective batteries, including those previously announced by manufacturers for specific notebook computers, said Julie Vallese, director of the Office of Public Affairs at the CPSC. But it is not expected to extend to batteries for devices other than laptops.
