Toshiba has recalled more Sony laptop computer batteries due to fire risk.
Toshiba is replacing a total 10,000 battery packs after three of its laptop PCs using battery cells made on Dec. 3, 2005, caught fire in the last 10 months. No one was hurt in the incidents.
More than 5,100 units of the 10,000 packs are potentially defective, but Toshiba is recalling double the amount to make sure all the battery packs containing targeted battery cells are exchanged.
Sony last year recalled 9.6 million PC batteries due to fire concerns, costing Sony $418 million.
