8/14/2007 08:21:00 AM Eastern

Espoo, Finland — Nokia today issued a product advisory for the 46 million Nokia-branded BL-5C batteries manufactured by Matsushita Battery Industrial between December 2005 and November 2006.

Nokia said in a release that in very rare cases the Nokia-branded BL-5C batteries could potentially experience overheating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the battery to dislodge. Nokia said is working with Matsushita and will be cooperating with relevant authorities to investigate this situation.

There have been approximately 100 incidents of overheating reported globally. No serious injuries or property damage have been reported.

Consumers should visit Nokia’s site or contact their local Nokia call center.
