Lenovo ThinkPad Laptops Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall of about 78,000 Lenovo ThinkPad x1 Carbon Laptops.   They were sold in silver and black.  Reports have been made that an unfastened screw can damage the battery causing overheating and a potential fire hazard.

The products were manufactured in China by Lenovo and sold at numerous computer retailers from December 2016 through November 2017. Consumers should check to see if their laptop is included in the recall.  Manufacturing date codes can be found on the bottom of the laptops.  (See image below). Laptops manufactured from 16/12 through 17/10 (December 2016 through October 2017) are included in the recall.

If the laptop is included in the recall, the CPSC is advising consumers to stop using it immediately. The laptop can be taken to an authorized repair center for inspection and repair.
