Lenovo Expands ThinkCentre Desktop Computer RecallLenovo just expanded last month’s ThinkCentre Desktop recall over fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission just announced.

The prior recall involved 50,500 Lenovo ThinkCentre M70z and M90z computers and has been expanded to include an additional 13,000 ThinkCentres. The release on the original recall can be accessed here.

A defect in an internal component in the power supply can overheat and pose a fire hazard. To date, the firm received reports of one fire incident-which prompted the original recall—and one smoke incident in the U.S. No injuries have been reported.

The defective, recalled Lenovo ThinkCentre desktops were manufactured in Mexico and manufactured and imported by Lenovo, of Morrisville, North Carolina. The desktops were sold online at Lenovo’s websites and by telephone and direct sales through Lenovo authorized distributors nationwide from May 2010 through March 2012 for about $500 for the M70z model and $800 for the M90z model.

The recalled all-in-one desktop computers, or PCs, are flat-panel monitors with the PC integrated into the monitor housing itself. The power supplies are also within the monitor or PC housing. The computer chassis has a matte black finish with the brand name “ThinkCentre” in the lower, left-hand corner of the front of the monitor. The recalled desktop model numbers, M90z and M70z, along with the serial number and manufacturing date code can be found on a label on the underside of the unit.

The following date codes are involved: 1001 to 1012, 1101 to 1112, 1201 to 1203, 001 to 012, 101 to 112, and 201 to 203. Consumers must contact Lenovo to determine if their particular computer is subject to this recall by providing Lenovo with the computer’s serial number.

The firm advises consumers to immediately stop using the recalled computers, unplug the power supply, and contact Lenovo to determine if their computer is included in the recall and to schedule an appointment for a free replacement of the power supply. Because additional systems and manufacturing dates have been added to the recall, even those customers who contacted Lenovo regarding the March 2012 recall should contact Lenovo again to verify if their system is part of the expanded program.

Lenovo can be reached, toll-free, at 1.855.248.2194 anytime, or at the firm’s website at www.lenovo.com/aiopsurecall.
