Computers recalled for overheating, fire risk

Posted under Lake Geneva product liability attorneys

Lenovo and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced last week that nearly 50,500 Lenovo ThinkCentre computers are being recalled for a potential fire hazard. A defect in an internal component can cause the power supply to overheat, creating a fire risk.

The Lenovo models affected are the ThinkCentre M70z and M90z, sold worldwide from May 2010 to January 2012. The company has received two complaints worldwide of fire and says that customers with a defected model should stop using it immediately.

Lenovo will replace the power supply free of charge. To check if your computer is affected, a support page on the Lenovo website will determine if your computer is defective after you enter your machine’s serial number.
