The situation just won’t die. Forbes reports that International Business Machines Corp and Lenovo Group have said that in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission they are voluntarily recalling around 526,000 lithium-ion batteries worldwide manufactured by Sony Corp. Lenovo said the batteries can overheat, posing a potential fire hazard. It said it will offer free-of-charge replacement batteries for all recalled batteries. The recalled batteries were sold with or sold separately to be used with some models of ThinkPad notebook PCs, it said.
