Lenovo announces expanded recall of ThinkCentre Desktop Computers

Lenovo ThinkCentre Desktop Computer Recall - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop computers because the power supply could overheat and catch on fire. There was a recall announced for 15,500 computers in March 2012, but the company has expanded the recall to 13,000 more computers.

A part inside the power supply could be defective and cause the powers supply to overheat and possibly cause a fire. Lenovo received a report of a computer catching on fire and another computer smoking in the United States. No injuries reports were received.

Lenovo sold the computers on their websites, by telephone, direct sales, and through Lenovo authorized distributors nationwide. The M70z sold for around $500 and the M90z sold for around $800 between May 2010 and March 2012.

The models involved in the recall are the ThinkCentre M70z and M90z. They are all-in-one desktop computer systems that have the computer and power supply built into the monitor display. Both the M70z and the M90z model numbers have the same date code ranges involved. The date code ranges are as follows: 1001 to 1012; 1101 to 1112; 1201 to 1203; 001 to 012; 101 to 112; 201 to 201. The model number and date code is printed on the label that is placed on the bottom of the monitor. The serial number will need to be checked directly with Lenovo to determine if the model is recalled.

Consumers that have these models that have the matching date code should stop using their computer and unplug the power from the electricity source until they can determine whether their serial number is involved in the recall. Customers can contact Lenovo toll-free at (855) 248-2194 anytime or by visiting their website at www.lenovo.com/aiopsurecall.

Lenovo is also asking consumers who checked their computer in the March 2012 to recheck the serial number again, even if they were told they were not involved in the last recall since the recall has expanded to more computers.
