Morrisville, NC — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Lenovo have voluntarily recalled about 50,500 Lenovo ThinkCentre M70Z and M90z computers over fire hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on March 8, 2012.
The computers were recalled after finding a defect in an internal component in the power supply that can allow the computer to overheat, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.
“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 inside 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 monitor front. The recalled desktop model numbers are M90z and M70z along with the serial number and manufacturing date code can be found on a label on the underside of the unit… Consumers will need to check the serial number on their computer with Lenovo to determine if it is subject to this recall,” the CPSC reported.
The date codes involved in this recall include: 1001 to 1012, 1101 to 112, 001 to 012, 101 to 112.
Consumers are advised to contact Lenovo to determine if your computer is included in this recall.
