The largest recall in consumer electronics history just got bigger, with both Toshiba and Lenovo (ThinkPad) announcing the recall of products containing a potentially explosive Sony-made battery.  With Dell, Apple and Sony recalls already underway, this latest announcement brings the total number of affected laptops to 7 million.


BBC:

China-based Lenovo said the problem affects ThinkPad laptops sold from February 2005, both under its own name and the IBM brand.

At Japan’s Toshiba, the recall involves its Dynabook, Qosmio, Satellite Portege and Tecra laptop models.

Following similar recalls by Dell and Sony, a total of seven million laptops worldwide have now been affected.

Lenovo, which bought IBM’s personal computer division in May last year, said it was ordering the recall after one of its laptops caught fire at Los Angeles airport.
